I was wondering where to find specialty dates and nuts in SD. In particular, I was wondering about different pistachios. Another thing is non-medjool dates, and in particular Mazafati dates.

North Park Produce doesn't seem to have them, but I wasn't sure if there were other good places to look. Thanks!

    Vine Ripe in La Mesa has a large variety of dates.

    Sultan Baklava in El Cajon sells Turkish pistachios.

      the Hillcrest Farmers MArket has a date vendor, she has very high quality dates and she even has two types of date jams.
