Best corn tortillas for retail?

Would like everyone's opinions on what retailer in the Seattle area has the best corn tortillas for sale? Locally made preferred.

  1. The Guadalupe Market at 128th n Roxbury in White Center has a tortilla factory inside it. They make their own tortillas there daily, as well as fresh fried chips. Also house-made salsas down the first isle closest to the tortilla station. Yum!

      For hot-off-the grill, go to Puerco Lloron, in the Pike Place Market. Though no longer on the menu, they've still sold me fresh tortillas by the dozen - a great thing to have in hand on a stroll through the market.
      Trader Joe offers a decent tortilla, in the bread section.

        Second this one. Made to order and delightful.

          No fair, though; they make it look so easy...

            Right? I've only tried a couple times. Complete failure. By the by, I think it might have been you who turned me on to these a couple years ago, so thanks for that.

        Guadalupe is on 128th & Ambaum in Burien,not Roxbury/White Center.
        They also make humongous chiccharones.

          Thanks for correcting me grangie... got Ambaum wrong. That is right at the line between Burien/White Center.
          The food counter attached also makes some awesome food to eat while your there!

          Weirdly, Safeway has started carrying a line of hand-made and probably locally-sourced tortillas. I haven't tried them yet. They're kinda pricey. For the price of a dozen you can get 300 of the kind that most people use as their stable diet. (I've even see Mexican ladies fold a tortilla and put their spaghetti with salsa bolognese in it)
