Where to find unfiltered apple cider?

melting | Oct 7, 2009 06:34 PM

I grew up (on the east coast) with unpasteurized, unfiltered apple cider (not alcoholic) available in the refrigerated section of all the grocery stores starting in early fall. Since moving to the Bay Area a few years ago, I look for it every year to no avail, and whenever I ask someone working in the grocery store, thinking maybe it's just located somewhere different from what I'm expecting, they point me to something in the unrefrigerated juice section that looks to me like apple juice, not apple cider. A couple times I've found something that looked right (darker, unfiltered, refrigerated), but ended up having a ton of sugar added, and I'm looking for something that's made with 100% apples. In past years I've looked at Safeway, Whole Foods, Andronico's, Trader Joe's, but have never been able to find it.

Anyone know of a good place to find what I'm looking for? I'm in Menlo Park, so somewhere on the Peninsula would be nice, but I'm willing to travel to satisfy my craving if needed. Thanks in advance!
