Where can I find cajeta?

Hi, I'm looking for cajeta near Union Square. Surrounding areas are fine but I'm trying not to veer too far from home for this product. Any ideas?

  1. I know it's not the same, but can you use dulce de leche? Whole Foods carries La Salamandra brand to which I am addicted.

    I've always had to go to Mexican groceries for cajeta..not seen it in supermarkets or "gourmet" shops here.

    1. Try here. Closest I can suggest:

      Zaragoza Mexican Deli & Grocery
      215 Ave A
      New York, NY 10009

      Tehuitzingo Mexican Deli
      695 10th Avenue, New York, NY 10036-2906

      695 10th Ave, New York, NY 10036

      215 Ave A, New York, NY 10009

      1. Victory Garden in the West Village sells cajeta sauce from Peace Tree. Call and ask!
