Does Anyone Know Where to Buy Frozen Artichoke Hearts in LA?

I want to make this recipe for Eggs in Purgatory from Bon Appetit:
but I haven't been able to find frozen artichokes at Ralph's (DTLA) or Whole Foods (National). Does anyone know a good place to buy them? TIA!

  1. I've seen them at Trader Joe's, Bristol Farms, and (I think) Whole Foods.

      I have seen them at Trader Joe's as well.

    2. They are sometimes labeled "Artichoke Bottoms".

        "Bottoms" tend to be larger and without any leaves. "Hearts" tend to be smaller and include some of the small, completely edible interior leaves. I've seen them both at almost every market I've been to. Probably your Ralph's and Whole Foods were just out of them. I've seen the best selection of them and best quality in Armenian / Middle Eastern markets.

          I've also seen them at Ralph's. I believe the brand is C & W but I'm not certain.

      2. I've gotten them from Trader Joes and also Valley Produce in Reseda (middle eastern market).

        1. I saw them at Super King market in Altadena.

          1. I got them at Trader Joe's - thanks, all!
