Where to buy boquerones?

Does anyone know where I can buy boquerones?

    1. I mean, what store sells them so that I may use them in my own cooking?

      1. I have seen them at the Spanish Table in Berkeley, the last time during Lent.

          Yeah, I've seen them at Spanish Table too. What part of the Bay Area is convenient to you? There is also a Spanish Table in Marin as well as Berkeley. I'm assuming you are looking for the canned version.

        2. For fresh anchovies in SF, you might try the Ferry Plaza Market: San Francisco Fish Company and Ferry Plaza Seafood or the outside stand, Fresh Fish. Also maybe the Seafood Center on Clement. I've seen them sporadically at the fish markets on Stockton St. in Chinatown.

          1. The best place by far for Boquerones is Berkeley Bowl. They are in the refrigerator across from the fish counter. It is an Italian brand, the name of which escapes me. They are far cheaper than anywhere else. They are packed flat, two layers, in white plastic trays with clear plastic covering.
