I think the little Italian market near my home has them tucked away in a corner of their produce section. I'm not sure how popular they are if they have them hidden away like that, but I'll give them a try the next time I'm shopping there. :)
That's one amazing list! I'm going to have to print that out. Maybe I'll put one list on my fridge for when I'm meal planning, and another folded up in my messy purse (lol...I need to clean it out soon) to have at the grocery store. :)

Anti Inflammatory & Cancer Fighting Foods List: (from William Li, MD)
Inflammation in the body has been linked to a number of serious medical conditions, including Alzheimer's disease, cancer, stroke, type 2 diabetes and asthma, according to the University of Wisconsin. While serious medical conditions require medical treatments, choosing the right foods may help reduce inflammation in your body. Not only do anti-inflammatory foods help reduce inflammation, they are tasty and healthy for you in other ways.
LIST OF ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FOODS:
Apple Blackberries Blueberries Cherries Clementines Cranberries Grapefruit Lemon Nectarines Orange Peach Pomegranate Raspberries Red grapes Strawberries Tomato
Almonds Cashews Chestnut Edamame Lentils Lima beans Pine nuts Sword jackbean Tofu (soft, firm, dried) Natto Walnuts
Hard Cheese (Gouda, Jarlsberg, Emmenthal, Edam) Yoghurt Eggs
BEVERAGES & SOUPS:
Apple Cider Cocoa Powder Coffee Green tea Miso Red wine Soy milk White wine
Chocolate Honey Maple syrup
Be picky. Red Delicious and Granny Smith apples have twice as many anti-inflammatory fighters as Fuji or Golden Delicious apples. The San Marzano tomato contains more cancer fighters than any other variety.
Wine grapes grown in cooler climates have more anti-inflammatory fighters than grapes grown in warmer climates.
Eat Your Sprouts. Broccoli sprouts can contain more anti-inflammatory fighting properties than regular broccoli.
Dunk Your Teabag. Dunking a tea bag up and down releases more anti-inflammatory fighting molecules than letting the bag just sit in the cup.
Cook Your Vegetables. Raw tomatoes are good, but cooking them in olive oil is better.
Chew Your Greens. Chewing leafy greens helps to release enzymes that activate anti-inflammatory fighting molecules embedded deep in the leaves.
Go Soy. Fermented soy, like the kind used in miso soup, contains four times more anti-inflammatory fighters than regular soybeans.
