Where to Find Tahini in the Grocery Store

Tahini is a Middle Eastern condiment. It’s a thick paste made out of ground sesame seed, and it’s commonly used as a dip or flavoring agent for dressings. It’s also rich in protein, calcium, and oil constituents.

Not sure where you can find tahini in the grocery store? Below we discuss the different aisles and sections of a grocery store you can check. 

The first spot you should check is the condiment aisle. Tahini is usually stored in a transparent jar near the gourmet olives. 

The ethnic food department and salad dressings aisleis another area to check. They are stored in jars or plastic containers. 

But grocery stores change their layouts frequently. Some stores put raw tahini inside the refrigerators. So if you don’t find Tahini in any of these places, ask an employee to direct you.

Does Amazon Sell Tahini?

Amazon is the biggest online store and you can easily find a variety of brands to choose from. Some bestselling products are the Roland and Lebanon valley. I find Amazon convenient to use cause the order gets delivered to my doorstep.

  • Trader Joe’s: Trader Joe’s has its own brand of organic tahini. This hasn’t stopped them from offering other brand products as well. Trader Joe’s doesn’t offer home delivery services, so you can’t order from its website.


Now you know where to find Tahini in a grocery store. But just to recap all the sections and aisles we’ve covered, your first stop is the condiment aisle. That’s where all food taste enhancers and sweeteners are stacked on shelves.

Your next stop is the ethnic food department because Tahini is a Middle Eastern/Mediterranean sauce, and not a native American condiment. The Ethnic food department is where you’ll find food items from other countries.

Your last stop is the refrigerator where food items are stored so they can last longer. 

One thing you should put in mind is that the aisles might be different in another store. If it’s becoming a chore to find Tahini at the grocery store, don’t hesitate to ask an employee for assistance.
