Fred Meyer should carry it, shouldn't they? I looked all over the store this morning. I was thinking it would be near the soy sauce, or the plum sauce but no luck. It would be on a shelf, right? Not refrigerated?

I don't know if Fred Meyer would carry it. Do you have an Asian grocery story nearby? It would be in the refrigerated section of the store.

Every time I buy miso paste, it's in a refrigerated area of the store.

Ohhh, okay. I briefly checked the area around the refrigerated almond milk I was buying, which is in the refrigerated health type food section, but didn't see it. I'll have to think about where else there are refrigerated spots there. Maybe around the dip/salsa?

We do have Asian stores. I'll have to check next time I go by one.

Why not ask someone who works in the store?

Employees are scarce at this particular store. I don't think I've ever had someone ask if they could help me. I usually can't even get help with problems at the self-check. The only people there are the cashiers and they're busy. But it's the only store within walking distance, so I usually go there for small stuff I need in between my main shopping trips.

I found it! It's in the organic refrigerated section at Fred Meyer. I went to an Orient market yesterday and didn't find it. They were slammed yesterday morning so I didn't find anyone to ask, but I don't think they had it.

Now I just need to know if there's a flavor difference between the red and white? I bought white this time.

Glad you found it! Miso is always one of those items I find myself wandering around the grocery store looking for. White miso is a little bit sweeter and milder than red. White miso is made with soybeans and rice, and red is made with soybeans and barley.

I was told by this sushi chef that the red is saltier and used for meats, strong oily fish & in pickling root veggies. The white is more for soups, stocks, glazes.
