There’s a cluster of Russian markets in Valley Village: Odessa Grocery, Tashkent, Babushka Grandma’s Deli. The little ones have entirely different items than Pacific Coast Co. Unfortunately, last time I went by, Tashkent was closed, while Odessa was letting only a few people in at a time. Those two are tiny!
For a while Ralphs was carrying Vermont Creamery butter. I snatched up a few pounds every time I went. Then they discontinued it. When I asked the apologetic fellow (I think it was a Murray’s guy) said there just wasn’t enough demand for them. Sigh.
I see it sometimes at Bristol Farms but lately seems to be sold out a lot. Usually it’s just the smaller 8 oz size. Couldn’t believe the flavor when i used it to make biscuits.
We got like like 8 boxes once at Grocery Outlet once for some crazy price like $2 a box… Went straight in the freezer and it made amazing pie crusts (Which also freeze well).
