Look for packages of black garlic in the produce section, near the fresh garlic. In my store there were found in basket on top of the produce bins. This is definitely a product that all stores may not carry, however most stores I’ve checked now do have it due to its increasing popularity – the trick is to find where they are hiding it!

  1. It never hurts to ask your grocery manager, you’d be surprised what they have access to and can bring in upon request.

  2. I have found it at “Whole foods Market”- by the onions,sweet potatoes,& potatoes section
