Souvenir Tamales: Mexico City

On a lark, I brought my small, collapsible cooler. Then, on the plane to DF, I realized that I often see Mexicans in Los Angeles buying and selling quantities of tamales in my hometown, Los Angeles. It would be fun to have a small party when I get home and freeze the rest. Where and how do I get good tamales? Waylay a streetvendor on my last day? Order at a specialty shop? Tamales cost 7 bucks a dozen in LA and $1.50 if you get them off the street one-by-one. So, if I can find a cost-effective way to fill up my little cooler, I'd love to do this!
