Who carries hazelnuts/filberts/noisettes in San Diego?

  1. I think Windmill Farms in Del Cerro has them in the shell. Out of the shell try Trader Joe's.

    Didn't there used to be a nut farm somewhere in the North County? Bates Nut Farm (or House), or something like that. Or maybe I'm just dating myself?

      Bates Nut Farm. Valley Center. But I don't know if they have filberts...


      I have ordered from this place in Pasadena. They roast the day the nuts are mailed and prices for mailing are cheaper than fuel to drive there...

        Cathy, thanks for the advice on aladdin. Ordered a pound of salted hazelnuts and a pound of Persian pistachios and I am very pleased with the quality and the prices.

      2. Bates Nut Farm has filberts $6.35 one pound packages.

        1. Thanks for the replies. I did find a small package at Vons in Encinitas, but they were quite expensive, $4 for 2.5 oz. and more for husked.

            Sprouts in Carmel Mountain have them for sale by the pound...I don't remember how much they are but maybe $10-$15 or cheaper. They're de-shelled...similar "farmer market" type stores might have them, such as Henry's.
