    Santa Monica Seafood recently opened a distribution center in the west valley that you can contact for a wholesale account. I called the a few weeks ago and they didn't have things up and running - that is likely not the case anymore. I do not believe they carry escargot.

    Have you tried Restaurant Depot for duck breast? European Imports should also be able to get D'Artagnan if that's what you're after. Supermarkets - Super L, Lee Lee. Octopus is dirt cheap @ Ranch Market.

    Retail is basically non-existent for these products by-and-large, from what I've found.

        Was in AJ's yesterday in Scottsdale.
        Huge selection of fish.
        They seem to carry just about everything, and you don't have to buy huge amounts like you have to do at Restaurant Depot.
        Just that the prices at AJ's are high, but the quality is always there.
