Where to find seaweed/nori wraps?

I've been looking for seaweed wraps (like used for sushi) in my 3 grocery stores - Coleman's, Sobeys, and Dominion - and not found them. I checked in the international foods aisle and the deli where the sushi is sold. Is there a place in a regular grocery that I missed, or do I have to find if this town has an Asian grocery?

I want to make my own seaweed crisps/chips since I can't find those either.

    I found some in Richards Whole Foods, which is a bulk/health foods store here in Flori-duh.

    Might want to try a bulk/whole foods or health foods store in your area. I think I've seen them the few times I've been to Wal-Mart, but I may have been mistaken, as I wasn't really looking.

    We have them at Whole Foods and I know I’ve bought them at our produce market too. Not sure about Kroger, but I would think so.

    Do you have a Korean or Japanese market near you?

    I am sure I found mine in the international aisle at Superstore.

    Not near me. There's probably one downtown at an inconvenient location only open 3 hours in the afternoon.

    The grocery stores I mentioned have sushi counters/stations that make wrapped rolls. The wraps have to come from somewhere. Asking where they get their wraps is not worth it since the answer is either I don't know or Sysco.

    We get them at Publix or Bilo. Not sure if you have those around.

    Do you have natural food stores like Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Natural Grocers, or independent versions of these? They usually have these items.

    Maybe you could order online, too.

    I have never ever heard of any of those stores (then again I live in Hollywood) lol. Whole Foods, sprouts, even Ralph’s carries them

    I bought these just yesterday at my local grocery store, Shoprite. Found on the bottom shelf in the international food section, tucked away with all the rice and noodles.

    I would check your local grocery store’s website to see if they stock the item first. That’s sometimes how I look to see if new products are available before I physically go to the market - if it’s available for purchase on their website, you can then go to the store and ask a person stocking shelves to look it up on their inventory handheld computer for the location because they can grab the SKU from the company website.

    Good luck finding them! I made shrimp and veggie wraps last night with the nori and they were awesome!

    Grocery stores really want your business. Try asking a manager to order them for you.

    Or go to any high end supermarket that sells prepared sushi and ask the counter person if they can sell you sheets of nori. That said, the same stores will also like carry it on shelf.

    You could also ask a sushi restaurant if they'd sell you some. Since restaurants aren't usually in the habit of declining sales, I'm pretty sure they won't have a problem with it.

    Health food stores carry it. My local Stop and Shop has the sheets in the Asian products aisle near noodles.

    If you can't find them locally, Amazon sells them. They also sell the seaweed snacks.

    I wasn't able to find any sheets today. This town has health food shops, but they're more toward supplements, aromatherapy, and salt lamps than actual food.

    While this is certainly one option, in my experience Amazon's Asian foods are WAY overpriced. I'm south of Boston and make the trip to Kam Man in Quincy a few times a year to stock up on Asian staples. Love that store!

    I have seen them in the produce section by refrigerated dressings. Look there?
