|Pistachio nougat at Turkish Family Market|
My original source closed in Elkridge, but I found a new supplier at the newish Turkish Family Market just off Rte 40 in Ellicott City.
This is pure pistachio nougat. Chewy rectangles of candy studded with bright green nuts. You get sweetness and crunch. It doesn't have the rose flavor from the Fard brand that I used to buy, and I have to say that I may like pure pistachio even better. (And it's another chance for me to convince Wordbones, who didn't love.)
Seriously, this nougat is delicious. Pieces come individually-wrapped, so it's a great little treat. It's unique enough to be a hostess gift, especially if you transfer the candy into something nicer than a plastic clamshell.
The Turkish Family Market opened in 2011, but it's pretty new to me. They have a butcher and a variety of fresh and canned goods similar to Nazar Produce Market in Columbia.

NEAR: Turkish Family Market is just off Rte 40 east of Rte 29 a few doors down from the C&B Italian Delly. The shopping center has some stores actually facing Rte 40, then some behind those. Turkish Family Market is in the back section. You actually need to turn south off Rte 40, then turn into the parking lot.
