I use dende quite a bit for moqueca and bobí³.  I used to buy it at the Brazilian Market in Wheaton, but they closed.  Now you could try http://www.bybrazilmd.com/, which is also in Wheaton.  The Best World and El Progreso markets in Mt. Pleasant also sometimes have it, but less frequently than the true Brazilian places.

While you are there, it's worth it to pick up some Guaraní¡ and some Yoki Pí£o de Queijo mix.

In Arlington there is European Foods Import Export Inc at 2700 N. Pershing Drive "¢ Arlington, Virginia 22201 website:

http://www.brazilianportuguesefood.com/ They carry Brazilian stuff so they may have palm oil.

Also in Alexandria (West End near Duke and 395) there is Sierra International Foods 145 Duke St Ste C
Alexandria, VA 22304. I think this is an African grocery so they may also have palm oil.

I can't verify if either place actually carries palm oil, but maybe worth checking.

I used the orange stuff, because I couldn't find plain palm oil (later found a source, & ordered in bulk), it made a lovely pinkish soap. I love living close to Bestway, I'm sure they have at least 2 types of palm oil-what sort of seafood are you going to use in your moqueca?

Frankly, after tasting the dende before adding it to the stew, I am not sure how much flavor it added to the already delicious soup.

I wasn't joking about letting it sit for a day or so after using the first time. :)  That really develops the flavor.
