Quail eggs in Phoenix

I will be in Phoenix this weekend and was wondering where I could find quail eggs? Do any of the asian markets carry these? And if so, where?

  1. I have seen them at AJ's many times in the produce section, of all places. If you're not from Phoenix, AJ's is an upscale grocery store/market with locations throughout the Valley. Specifically, I have seen them at the Thompson Peak/Frank Lloyd Wright location.

    1. LeeLee's (Chandler) always has them and I also saw them at the new grocery at Mekong Plaza (Mesa).

        Yup, and it's cheaper at Mekong if I recall correctly.

      2. Where are you staying?

        Yes, Lee Lee's is a very safe bet, they always have them. But, if you can't make it to the southeast valley, the Asian Market at the Chinese Cultural Center at 44th Street north of Van Buren and south of McDowell quite often has them in the egg display case just at the south of the produce section between poultry and the fresh meat counter.

        AJ's can have them on occasion, but you will pay MANY more dollars for them.....

        Best of luck and enjoy your visit!

          Thanks for all the replies. I figured the asian markets would be a safe bet but thought I'd see if there is anything near Scottsdale. Thanks again!

        2. Where can I find quail , fresh or frozen, to buy in Arizona?

            Haji-Baba Grocery store/market on Apache Blvd in Tempe has these in their freezer.
