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?

    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.
