I know a Marzipan of Homestar Runner.

Sorry if this is not so helpful.

What kind of marzipan are you looking for? Just basic marzipan for cooking with or marzipan formed into shapes? Candies? I know Whole Foods has had these in years past. You might also check Metcalfes. Or you still have time to get some from Amazon:

I like making my own, as kids we used to make and paint our own for Easter. My proudest moment was making a large green marzipan alligator for the centerpiece when I was 11. It was awesome. I posed it eating the bunny my sister made.
Here is how to make marzipan:

The Rolling Pin Bakeshop in Fitchburg has an excellent Marizpan cake. It's a cake covered in marzipan like it was frosting.
