French olives in Montreal?

carswell | Sep 18, 2002 12:33 PM

For years I've been seeking, without success, an affordable source for French olives in Montreal. But while Moroccan, Spanish and kalamata olives are ubiquitous and a good selection of Italian olives can be found at Milano and other stores in Little Italy, I've yet to run across the tiny olives niçoises (aka Cailletier), meaty olives de Nyons (the only olive with its own appellation contrôlée) or the succulent green Picholines, to say nothing of Lucques and Salonenques. Bulk would be best. Small, exorbitantly expensive jars like those sold at Anjou Québec and Laurier Gourmand are not what I'm in the market for. Any ideas about where I might look? Thanks!
