Where to Find Greek Yogurt

Where can I get Greek yogurt in the United States? Are there any retailers that you know of that can ship to Arkansas?

As with so many ethnic foods, it can really matter where you are. Greek markets in Chicago, Detroit, and other cities that saw substantial Greek immigration carry Greek yogurt. In the years since this question was first answered, though, one company, at least, has been importing Greek yogurt for the broader consumer market, and we have seen it in grocery stores from coast to coast.

Fage (pronounced fah-yeh) is the leading dairy producer in Greece, with a capacity to turn out a half-billion containers of yogurt a year. Its US subsidiary began importing yogurt to this country in 2000, and it is now found in gourmet, health food, natural food stores and high-end supermarkets in Maine, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Florida, Arizona, Texas, California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and elsewhere. You can email the company to find out exactly what that "elsewhere" means, although we're not totally confident it includes Arkansas yet. If that is the case, you can easily get Fage Greek Yogurt online.

Failing that, you could follow the directions of George Moudiotis in our favorite Greek cookbook, Traditional Greek Cooking (Canada, UK), and make your own Greek Yogurt. We would definitely follow the final step to make the "thick" yogurt, as to our minds, that's what separates Greek yogurt from all the yogurts available in every supermarket in this country.
