A few years ago, finding Spanish food in your stores have been a challenge, but today my country’s cheeses, sausages, hams and more are much more widely available. Supermarkets across the country like Whole Foods or Wegmans – as well as specialty retailers like Balducci’s, Dean & Deluca and Trader Joe’s– are stocking more and more Spanish products. If you can’t find what you need at your local shops, be sure to ask for it or check out one of our favorite resources below.

La Tienda

Located in Williamsburg, Virginia, this is your one-stop shop for all things Spanish. The Harris family search across Spain for the most authentic products and delivers them right to your door through their website and catalog.

Despaña

For more than 35 years, this company has been bringing the flavors of Spain to America, including their own house-made chorizo and morcilla sausages. Recently, they opened a retail food boutique in New York City. Catch a glimpse when I visit their store on my show (Asturias: How They Cook Back Home).

La Española Meats

This California-based company has long been considered a pioneer in the importing of Spanish products. And although they offer Spanish rice, oils and peppers, it is their Spanish-style sausages and cured meats that have gained them notoriety.
