Anyone know where I can purchase Castelvertrano olives in Central NJ? I live in Middlesex County but I am willing to travel a bit to get them. Thank you.

        Thank you both. I got some Monday at Wegman's in Woodbridge. I had tried these at Auburn Road winery and loved them. The ones they served were a brighter green and not as salty. I contacted Auburn Road for a source but never heard back from them. I will try Whole Foods and Fairway next time I'm in their area. The quest continues....

            The best spot for them that I've found is at Bon Appetit, in Princeton. Probably, they're a little more pricey here than other places, however, they are far and away the best--softer, less bitter than, say, what Whole Foods stocks, better overall flavor, too. McCaffery's, right next door, also sells them, but theirs are not as good, though better than at Whole Foods. Perhaps they all use different suppliers, but perhaps it's due to Bon App's storing them in oil while, I believe, WF uses just water/brine and probably McCaffery's, too, though I wouldn't swear to it.

              Was just at the farmers market on the corner of amwell road & 206 in hillsborough. Not only is their produce super super cheap (69 cents or yellow & orange peppers) but they also have castelvertrano olives
