        I have found several at our WF. Ask them if they can start carrying a specific brand or a full fat of one of the current brands they have...

        If you have a WF store, does that mean you also have a smaller health food store or co-op? Try that. Greek Gods and Fage are pretty popular here. Oikos?

        Dump a container of plain, full fat yogurt into a cheesecloth over a bowl. Twist the corners to squeeze out the liquid. Continue putting pressure on the tied up mass to get out as much liquid as you can. Take that mass and put it in strainer over a bowl (cheesecloth should not touch bottom of bowl) and refrigerate for 2-3 more hours to allow the rest of the liquid to drain out. Put tied up ball of cheesecloth/yogurt back in to sink and press on it to get out any remaining liquid.

          Trader Joe's didn't carry any Fage but Wegmans has it but its the large container. So yummy when mixed with avocado, diced tomatoes, cilantro, onions! Makes a nice mayo replacement and its good on chicken. Also, use it with organic salsa and put it on my eggs.

            So they can list a higher number next to "Fiber" on the label and boost sales.

                We just discovered a brand called Liberté Méditerranée - it's 11% fat and crazy good!! They have a FB page too.

                  Kalona is by far the best I've tried. I buy both the plain and the vanilla (which is surprisingly low in sugar). There's a Natural Grocers nearby that carries it. The Whole Foods in our area carries other Kalona products, but not the yogurt.

                    I also buy the Stonyfield organic whole milk yogurt. Kroger has it in the "health food" section and it's like $3.79 for a fairly large container.

                      Look for the yogurt aimed for babies, Yo Baby comes to mind, and there is a Greek one called Little Champions that comes to mind. It's so frustrating how fewer and fewer options are out there these days.

                          Why is there no FAGE in Canada???? I am so frustrated by that. I had it when I was in Serbia last summer and loved it.

                          For now I stick to my 2% Oikos (Danone). I think it has the best taste. I tried the Greek Gods (10%) but I found it tasted like sour cream, not yogurt, in which case I may as well buy actual sour cream (much cheaper). I also haven't seen the Liberte Mediterannee 11% on my grocery shelves, either. Stupid Canada....

                            Whole milk is approx 4% fat. How can yoghurt have 11% fat except by having cream added?

                              The Fage full fat is called "Total" maybe you just missed it on the shelves at Whole Foods?
                              My Whole Foods carries it as does our Wegmans.

                                I don't go to Whole Foods. I can afford nothing there.
