Doing traditional Italian Christmas Eve dinner and looking for somewhere to buy baccala ( preferably boneless) hopefully somewhere in North County? Or do I have to go to Little Italy?

  1. Check with Major Market. Usually if they don't have it, they'll get it for you.

    Santos Farm Market on Lincoln at 30th sells the Goya brand frozen baccala.

      I just bought it at Major Market. It comes in a wooden box in the frozen fish section to the left of the fresh fish case.

    2. Not sure about North County, but Pata Negra Market on Garnet in PB carries it.

      1. You could also try one of the Northgate markets in the North County as well.

        1. Whole Foods. Saw it yesterday, in the LJ store fish case. They always have it by the box.

            Thanks! That would be most convenient option- location wise and also the boxed is typically boneless

          2. Mona Lisa down in Little Italy sells it.
