Monukkas in Marin?

Anyone know of a source for monukka raisins in Marin County? You used to be able to find them in any health food store, but they've become scarce. I'm willing to travel to Berkeley or SF if need be. (I've located them online, but the shipping costs exceed the cost of the raisins.) I'd be grateful for any leads.

  1. Try Good Earth in Fairfax. They have often had them in the past. It is one of the first of the "health food" movement stores from the late 60s. 1968, I think. Here is a link. Give them a call.

    1. Berkeley Bowl has them (of course). In the bulk food bins for $2.29 per pound (same price as Thompson or Flame raisins).
      They also have several varieties of pre-packaged raisins of much higher quality -- larger, tastier, a bit more expensive.
