Kalamata olives in WA?

teajoygreye Jun 30, 2013 06:04 PM

So, DH & I have been l looking all over for kosher kalamata olives. The only ones we have found are up in BC and therefore crazy expensive...anyone know of someone in Washinton state that carries them?

    There are brands like Krinos that are widely available, Some mail order companies ship them.

        I'm not looking for brand names so much as who might carry them locally. I havent been able to find them locally (even through affordablekosher.com)

          The brand names we're referencing are not traditionally kosher brands, they are brands you would find in most groceries.

        trader joes used to have star k certified one here not sure if they are still available. there is an Israeli brand that has their own "kalamata" style (cured in wine vinegar) in a can

          Trader Joe's does not carry kosher ones here. I'm there about once every other week and they have never had them since we moved here

            Go to the Krinos Canada website http://www.krinos.ca/faq.asp?p=1

            they'll tell you what stores in Vancouver carry their line of Kalamata
