where to buy pre-made, packaged arepas in Brooklyn? (Colombian-style)

My daughter asks every morning if there are arepas, but we just don't make it enough to Jackson Heights, where I usually buy them. I saw them at Fairway last month, but wondering people know of any other Latino store, supermarket or bakery that sells them so I can freeze at home. Thanks!

    The largest "pre-made" arepa selection I've seen is at Trade Fair Supermarkets. YMMV depending on location, but IIRC they're all located in Queens.

      I think the hispanic supermarket on 8th Ave, across the street from Ba Xuyen, carries them. At any rate, Ive bought them there in the past.

        I went into the store, La Placita de Brooklyn, today, and they have some packaged arepas.

            they are industrial looking but they may meet your needs. We like the sweet corn ones with mozzarella melted on top.

              Jen, I have been known to reach for a mozzarepa on occasion.
