  1. I've never seen it here in the 10 years I have lived here. Try Frigo. I can most often find the whole milk version at Winco, as I prefer it to the part skim.

    When I moved here I looked for it all over, I am from Brooklyn, NY originally, and it is what I used there. If you want a treat, go get a calzone at Al Forno Ferruzza, they make their own ricotta, and it is fantastic. Wish they sold it by the pound!

      Im a northeast transplant too. There really is nothing better than Polly-O but I will try the calzone. Thanks, Be well.

        Frigo is disgusting, and Sorrento is almost as bad. I'm from Flatbush and have resorted to having anyone traveling from NYC bring me some in their luggage. (It'll be fine out of refrigeration that long.)

        There was an organic kind whose brand I can't rmember the name of, and I think I got it at Central Market. That was the closest I've ever had here.

          Central Market?? What/where is that?

            Maybe means "City Market"? Does Martinottis sell good ricotta?

              Central Market is a chain in Seattle. Riodv answered another post about Seattle so maybe there is some location confusion?

        2. No Polly-O, but the ricotta they have in the cheese case at Pastaworks/City Market is good.
