Plochman Mustard

I have run out of this delicious mustard and are having a hard time finding it. I've checked Roche Bros., Shaw's, Hannaford's, Market Basket and Stop and Shop in the Brockton area, but could not find it. I could order it online, but shipping costs are $$. Any help from CH'ers?

    Btw, I found it at Hannaford in Saugus yesterday.

      Saw the "Chicago Fire" variant of Plochman's at the Hannaford in Marlborough today.

      This is so strange to me! Plochman's is the default mustard in the midwest, those yellow barrel shaped bottles are on every shelf. I have noticed that it's hard to get much more than French's or French's-like regular sandwich mustard in most grocery stores in Boston. It's either French's, maybe a Dijon, or precious expensive glass jars.

      What to do? There was something once from Vermont or New Hampshire at Market Basket that was great but disappeared after a couple of weeks. I haven't had better luck at Star/Shaw's.

        This is so funny to me too—especially since there's pretty much nothing *but* Plochman's in our market in Iowa. I never even thought about the fact that it's missing it in Boston! The one that I could never find when I moved to Boston was Inglehoffer's — but I think I've even seen it at Stop and Shop nowdays...

        Upstate NY is also definitely Plochman's territory— so maybe Wegmans has it?

          There were a couple of varieties of Inglehoffer's at Somerville MB this weekend. And a few other new mustards which will probably disappear in a few weeks but who knows? I brought home a few.

        Did you ever find the Plochman mustard? I have been looking at every market I go to since I read your post...but no luck.

          Yes, I did find it at Trucchi in West Bridgewater. Again, thanks for everyone's help.

              I remember seeing it years ago at Marty's Liquors in Allston. They have since closed, but I'm reading they may have reopened in a different location, and I think they have another location in Newton. Worth a phone call?

                The Marty's in Allston has moved to 103 N Beacon St (between Arthur St & Herrick St).
                The original Newton location is undergoing construction, and remain open. In fact it's just as busy as always behind the facade!

                  Be warned that the new Allston Marty's doesn't have the full deli department that the old one had or the Newtonville location still has.

                I've seen it occasionally at Ocean State but of course that's a crapshoot.

                  I have bought it there and seen it less regularly short-date at Building 19 which is doing a grocery event starting this weekend. I wouldn't drive there for Plochman, but they do often have some unusual ethnic groceries and sundries.
