SoCal gal in Cherry Hill needs her masa to make tamales.

Anyone know of a large Mercado in South Jersey???
Thanks hounders.

    1. Are you looking for just the flour? Don't know about cherry hill but south philly has many small markets that have it, no big markets. The shop rite in the port Richmond section of philly, right off aramingo ave, has a large Latin section and carries masa too. Both much closer than norristown.

        How about that....I know exactly where that is. You know, I ended up finding dry masa at whole foods. The bag was partially opened ( a tiny bit) and they gave it to me on the house...
        Now I know! Thanks

      2. It's definitely NOT a larger mercado, but there's a small, family-run Mexican market on Route 70 in Cherry Hill. I don't remember the name, but it's just a couple doors down from their restaurant, La Cita. The restaurant is very casual but we enjoyed it a great deal.
