Goya Products?

jandazza Dec 19, 2013 09:54 AM

I live in Los Angeles, in Los Feliz, to be exact, and was shocked to find how limited the selection of Goya products are at the local supermarkets (though I come from a city with a large Brazilian population, so maybe I'm spoiled). I know their products have more of a Caribbean slant, but I would think that their high quality and lower sodium content would have some appeal to Angelenos. I am specifically looking for this: http://www.amazon.com/Goya-Extra-Fine...
I could order it from Amazon, but I'd love to have it today, if at all possible. Anyone buy this regularly and know where I could pick it up, somewhat locally?

Thanks!

    Food 4 Less actually has a lot of Goya products. There is one right off the Sunset exit on the 101.

      I know and love that cornmeal.

      You can get it at any Vallerta Market (north hollywood would be your closest) or, there is a cuban market on Glendale Blvd., in Atwater Village by Out of the Closet and Proof Bakery. I have gotten it there in the past.

      A excuse to visit Proof Bakery? Why not?!

        @kate is always hungry -- THERE IS A JON'S TWO MILES FROM ME! I'll check it out.

        And thank you, @ipsedixit. I'm on a mission and no amount of rain is going to stop me.

        When I find the Goya, I'll report back. Thank you!

          Call first before heading out.

          Try some of the Hispanic markets in/around El Sereno (to the east of you) or El Monte (further east), or if you don't mind driving a bit in this, ahem, rain you could poke around the markets in Huntington Park (south of you).

            Jons has a good selection of Goya. I'm not sure there's one in Los Feliz but I think there's one on La Brea. :)

              Sadly, Jon's on La Brea closed at least a year ago. But, there are two in Glendale which would not be far for the op.

                There's a Jon's on Vermont near the hospital.
