    Cardullo's in harvard sq. used to sell them. Also I've seen them at Formaggio both in cambridge and in the south end as well as at Russo's 9 Watertown. I love them too.

      Whole Food's carries them too, in the cheese dept.

        Some Whole Foods have them in their antipasto bars, at $9.99 a pound, which is a steal...

        South End Formaggio, and presumably the Huron Village location, too.

            Fresh, I assume? I've also seen them jarred at J Pace in the South end.

              They all arrived packed in cans, jars or trays, prepacked, and premarinated. If you see them "fresh" at Formaggio or WF, they're just removed from big containers and sold by weight.

                Um, I meant the North End, obviously.

            I've bought them at Salumeria Italiana in the North End.

              Capone's in Union Square always has them as does the Whole Foods on Cambridge St. in Boston. Have also bought them many times at Russo's

                I buy them at Russos, almost always has them, much cheaper than whole foods and formaggio

                  Thanks I couldn't find them at Whole foods but didn't look in the cheese section, also didn't see them at J Pace or Salumeria but will ask next time, Who has the better price?

                    Most all the Whole Foods have them, in the section I have come to think of as the "fancy antipasto" department, near the cheeses where they keep the various olives, caperberries, roasted peppers, and other refrigerated tidbits.
