Where can I get Marzipan?

The Huntress kindly linked me to a recipe for an almond cake (a Nigella recipe - http://www.nigella.com/recipes/view/e...) and it calls for marzipan. Anyone know where can i find some in SF proper, or in East Bay (hopefully El Cerrito, Albany, Berkeley)?
Berkeley Bowl sometimes has it in bulk (cheaper) though sometimes they have only almost paste (same stuff minus egg white and sugar) in bulk. I think they always have Odense except occasionally before the Xmas holidays they might run out.

They also have some (though not in bulk) at Cost Plus World Market - though i haven't been in a while. I've used it to make chocolate cake.
I've bought it at Berkeley Bowl in bulk (not particularly smooth), and in cans from Cal-Mart on California at Laurel/Cherry. The cans were much smoother.
