There is a couple who sell at the Ashby flea market every weekend who have a great collection of cast iron -- I think it's their speciality and prices are pretty good. If you want a new one, try Pastime Hardware in El Cerrito.

If you want a used cast iron skillet, Gilman St. Salvage , next to Picante and across from Urban Ore, had stacks of them the other day.

Ace Hardware kitchen dept sold iron cooking ware the last time we bought some, which was many years ago. A craftsman we met who makes hangers for cooking pots said that swap meets are a good place to find them as they last forever and the older they are, the more seasoned they are.
