Where to get anchovy olives in ABQ?

This is probably about the dumbest post I've ever done, but I don't know what else to do. I cannot seem to find any anchovy olives in the Albuquerque area--have tried Smith's, Albertson's, Sunflower, Raley's, even Trader Joe's and Talin Market. Most of these have every other conceivable type of stuffed olive, but none with anchovies. Is there a conspiracy? Some kind of blight that I don't know about? Or am I skimming the shelves too fast and missing them? Please set me straight.

    1. Hi,

      I'm in Scottsdale, AZ; however, I get them at Cost Plus World Market. I checked on their site, and one is located in the Albuquerque area. I'd call first, but all of our locations carry Roland brand and, I believe, another brand as well. They are delicious, aren't they?

      You may also find them if you have any Caribbean or South American market as well.

      Good luck!

      1. Thanks. Can't believe they're so hard to find here. Ususally have no trouble in any other city. Feel like an ass just for asking.

        1. Call Tully's Market on San Mateo and then Deli Mart on Coors They both have imported Italian specialties. Also Freemonts on San Mateo might have them (they're very uneven in what they carry.. but they have some intresting imported "gourmet" (I hate that word) stuff.
          Good Luck
