Herring Hunting In SD or Riverside Counties

I've just moved to Borrego Springs from Los Angeles, and need to locate a source for whole pickled (sometimes called 'schmaltz') herring somewhere closer than L.A. for our traditional Polish Christmas Eve dinner - any ideas? We do two different dishes and I need to start with the whole, brined fish...thanks so much for any leads!

  1. I have seen herring at Tip Top Meats on rare occasions. You might give them a call to find out if they have it.

    1. Costco in Palm Desert carries the LASCO BRAND. I would call first, there might be a cstco closer than that one.
