Fresh Masa?

Does anyone know where I can buy fresh masa to make tamales in the Northern Virginia area?

  1. If you cant find premade, can you find a bag of masa harina?

    1. Try Bestway markets or El Eden...

      1. In NoVa, I doubt it. I only know of Moctec in Hyattsville.

        1. There are many Latino groceries stores in Arlandria in Alexandria, along Mt. Vernon Ave up by Glebe Road. Sorry I don't know the names but a drive along Mt. Vernon Ave would give you the options. There is also a big grocery store on Telegraph near Huntington Road.
