There is an old thread that was created here that I'll reference. It's completely outdated and is not helpful to anyone who is looking for actual squid ink and is in the bay area especially during COVID times. I recently found a store in Palo Alto that stocks plenty and plenty of cuttlefish ink from this brand "Nortindal" for about 20 dollars a jar ( https://yummybazaar.com/products/nort... ).

Go to Teleferic Barcelona in Palo Alto here's an address: 855 El Camino Real #130, Palo Alto, CA 94301. Adjacent to the restaurant is a small store attached to the restaurant. I visited this place just yesterday and it had plenty of Nortindal squid ink available to purchase if you are interested in getting squid ink to make squid ink pasta of your own at home.

As a tangential note, finding squid ink pasta available somewhere in the bay area has taken me forever to find, from asking supermarkets to finding completely outdated, decade old forum threads on reddit, here and elsewhere. I didn't want to order online at the time since I was in a rush, and I just wanted some squid ink for a pasta I was going to make for my parents. Anyways, hope this helps future google searchers and anyone that wants an updated answer to this rather obscure problem. Feel free to respond to this thread if you know of other places here in the Bay Area that stock cuttlefish ink.
