    Consider visiting an Asian supermarket they usually have live clams in tanks for a decent price

      If you can wait until Saturday, the fish vendor at the farmers' market is a good bet.

            Second Fish King. They carry both Manila and littleneck. Costco often carries both clams and mussels. Good quality, but large quantity. Whole Foods has been much better with seafood lately, and you can get squid there as well as clams and mussels.
