Where to find achiote paste in Lower Westchester?

Hi All,

I am looking for achiote paste for a recipe for dinner this week. Anyone know where I might be able to find some? I have already tried a couple stores and bodegas. (And, yes, I know I can make my own, but since I have an infant son, getting dinner on the table is the best I can manage at the moment.)

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  1. Have you tried Fairway in Pelham? They have a pretty extensive spice/herb/condiment selection. Also in White Plains, across the street from the Post Office (more or less), on Martine, there is a Latin American grocery store. I don't know the name, but they might have something like that. Lastly, Walmart in White Plains has a pretty good Latin American food selection.

    1. In White Plains on Post Rd, heading toward Scarsdale, across from where car dealerships have been knocked down, are a couple of Latino markets. Or even Stop and Shop in WP or other community with a size able Latin population.

        Thanks. Those are precisely the markets I went to, but no luck.

      2. I got mine from one of the Latin groceries on South Kensico Avenue in White Plains on either side of La Nueva Puebla. It's behind the checkout so you have to ask for it.

          1. On Central Ave in Hartsdale. Same strip mall as TJMax, there is a Mexican restaurant and market. probably there.
