Arepas to purchase and bring home

Hi Chowhounders,

I recently visited Colombia and I am craving some arepas. Not necesarily the cheese or egg filled arepas but specifically the corn arepas that you can eat with cheese or marmelade for breakfast. I'm checking into Cosecha Imports and Midtown Global Market. Any other suggestions?

I definitely want to the Hola Arepas. I usually get my arepa fix at La Colonia, which I believe used to be La Gran Colombia on Central in NE. Very tasty - but it is served warm and more as an appetizer.
