Best place for retail FRESH MOZZARELLA in LA?
Gelson's also carries a very nice burrata from a local vendor who's often at farmers markets.
It's very good. And I know this is a bit off topic....but I took a mozarella making class at Andrew's Cheese Shop in Santa Monica. It was really a lot of fun....and the results were tasty!
You can go directly to the factory of Angelo & Franco in Hawthorne and get their fresh cheese. In addition to Mozzarella they also make:
Ciliegine with Cream
Their cheese is also available at Beverly Hills Cheese Shop, Monsieur Marcel, The Curious Palate,
Bay Cities Italian Import Store, Sorrento Italian Market, The Artisan Cheese Gallery and Costco

La Brea Bakery usually has some fresh mozzarella or burrata from the same providers that supply Mozza.
The good cheese shops also receive very regular shipments of mozzarella and burrata, so you may want to look at The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills and Wally's in Westwood. I love Wally's mozzarella sandwich. It's obvious that the cheese is very fresh.
I know Bay Cities has Gioia's burrata (I get mine there often). I'm pretty sure they carry their mozzarella.
And Guidi Marcello probably has the same. (they import from Italy, but they have some local stuff too - great breads and I'm pretty sure I've Gioja products there.)
