Where the hell can you buy tempeh?!

I give up! I've tried Holland Barrett, Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury's, and other little health food type places!

You can get it from both independant wholefood shops (NOT Holland and Barrett!) and Chinese supermarkets.

I go to an independant Health Food store and the owner is brilliant. I order tempeh and many other products in bulk which works out cheaper for me then i just freeze them. :)

Yeah, I get mine from a local health food shop, and Shrewsbury ain't exactly forward thinking...

Think so. Tempeh has little knobbly bits in.

I am in UK , South Coast, and round here you can get tempeh from independent health food shops, they never have it in Holland and Barretts. I get mine from a tiny health food shop in the next village. They never keep much of it in stock. If you want the tempeh very specifically it's worth phoning the shop before you go to check if they have any. Most independent health food shops will be able to order some in for you. I very much doubt that Holland and Barretts would order in tempeh.

If you come into London, Fresh n Wild (Whole Foods) or Planet Organic. If you're in Brighton, places like Infinity Foods or Taj and in Croydon, Surrey there's a little health food shop on the High St that stocks tempeh :-)
