Where do you buy your condiments?

I'm constantly looking for delicious condiments (preferably local) for my own consumption as well as cute gifts but keep running into the same brands! Where do you generally get relishes, mustards, tomato sauces, hot sauce etc...

Any ideas or do you also find it hard to find good ones that aren't major labels?

  1. The Larder at Tavern or The Farmshop. Both in Brentwood. Surfas, is not as precious but also has wonderful condiments

      Do you have any specific ones you buy every time or always try something new? :)

    2. Papa Christos - olive caviar, greek seasoning

      Also this is mass produced but not very popular. It is sort of like spicy Korean ketchup but it says spicy cocktail sauce. It is pretty tasty.

      1. Schreiner's Fine Sausages in Montrose.

        In addition to their amazing selection of sausages, cured and smoked meats, they've got all sorts of mustards and pickles, most of which I've never seen anywhere else in LA.

            Monsieur Marcel, at the Original Farmer's Market. Extensive.

        2. Bay Cities. Rows and rows of condiments and sauces - fills the entire place.

          1. Guidi Marcello in Santa Monica has condiments that would be local if you lived in Italy...but they are an interesting melange of things you probably won't see that often none the less. You can see a listing of what they feature by clicking on the link below.
