Where to find Fage Yoghurt

Where (grocery stores?) can I find Fage Yoghurt in Northern Virginia. I have not seen it at Safeway before and I have not seen it at Duke St. Whole Foods (though i could have passed it by). Does anyone buy it regularly from one place? let me know!

    That's funny, I was just eating one. I bought my from Tyson's Trader Joe's, although they only had the total 0% kind.

    I saw a huge selection at Tyson's Whole Foods, if you're willing to make the drive.

      Normally it is in the organic section just fyi. I know they have it at Harris Teeter in the regular section and Wegman's int he organic section and sometimes both sections.

        I am not being persnickety, but I don't know why it would be in the organic section as it is not organic.

          Don't know but that is where it is in Wegman's normally, although sometimes it is in both sections so you can take that up with the store.

            Ah...I think I see, we were getting into the semantics I think, you must mean the "natural" section (different from organic) at Wegmans.

              That could be it, it is the section normally right after the tea, and has its own separate refrigerator and freezer section.

        it is definitely at the Whole Foods on Duke St. I just bought some there last night in fact. They have the regular, 2% and fat-free. Maybe they were just out when you were there.

          I've bought it at the Trader Joe's at Baileys Crossroads

            I can't speak for NoVa, but most Giant stores in Rockville/Potomac carry the full line of Fage yogurts.

              Yeah, my Giant in Glen Burnie sells it. A coworker of mine buys his at Superfresh.

              The Trader Joe's house brand (no cute Greek name for this one, unlike the Trader Ming's and Trader Giotto's products) costs half as much and is, in my opinion, equally delicious, especially with a sprinkling of granola and fruit. There's an absurd amount of protein in it, too.

                Yes, but only the plain stuff. The stuff that claims to already have honey mixed in it is awful!

                  Agreed -- honey isn't needed if you really like the tang of the yogurt, and who doesn't have their own honey at home or work?

                I buy it regularly at the Trader Joe's in Centreville. They also generally have it (at a slightly higher price) at the Giant in Haymarket, though sometimes they are out of some of the formats. (It comes in full fat, 2%, and 0%. We always buy the 0%, which is still really creamy-tasting. We love it. In addition to mixing with fruit or granola, another good thing to do is stir in onion soup mix to make a much healthier onion dip than the sour cream sort. Of course, to keep with the healthy theme you'd want to dip veggies rather than potato chips :-).)
