A good (and inexpensive) online source for almond meal - they call it 'almond flour,' but it's the same, just a slightly fine grind: http://www.ohnuts.com/buy.cfm/bulk-nuts-seeds/almonds/ground-flour

I make my own all the time. First soak the almonds in water for a couple of hours so you can slip the skin off easily. Then let the almonds dry and into the food processor.

you could make your own, I remember Merrill had a video about making it on this site, its basically almonds in the food processor until you get the required consistency
