The local supermarket carries "San Marzano" tomatoes... grown in California! Apparently the grower got ahold of some genuine San Marzano tomato seeds and grows them domestically. The taste was not bad!

Quote
The seeds of the world-famous San Marzano plum tomato have been transported to sunny California, and the result is sweet, meaty and flavorful. They are great for soups and stews, but they really shine either coarsely chopped or pureed as the base for pasta sauces.

Also, you can buy Pastene genuine San Marzano tomatoes online:

http://store.pastene.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=PU&Product_Code=TOMA8077&Category_Code=TOMA

The cans each have a unique serial number and carry all of the official DOP seals from Italy.

Shipping on 6 cans of the Pastene tomatoes to Virginia is only $7.50... not too bad.

I just ordered myself some Lavalle DOP genuine San Marzano tomatoes, some SAF instant yeast, and some Farina tipo Italian "00" flour from www.pennmac.com

The Lavalle tomatoes were only $2.99/can.

Shipping wasn't too bad either.
