Where can I buy Fava Beans?  Not even my local health food stores have it.  One store owner told me that Garbanzo Beans are the same thing but I don't think so. Was he correct...I can find those.

Garbanzos are not the same thing. If there is a local store that carries items from Progresso, you can get them to order some canned favas. Mediterranian/Middle Easteastern ethnic area stores are more likely to carry favas. I'm sure they can be ordered online as well, someone will probably provide a link that they like.

Favas are sometimes called faba or haba beans as well. They are also called broad beans sometimes.

I have been getting mine in dried form from a large metro area grocery off the shelf, would be easier if I lived there.

Thanks Lloyd.  I'll look in the dried bean section, I hadn't thought of that.  If all fails, I'll try to order it from Progresso myself if the store can't get it for me.

This online store offers organic dried fava beans in several sized amounts at what seems to be a reasonable price: Sun Organic Farm

I haven't ordered from them, yet.

They are also sometimes called Horse Beans.

I have to disagree with the Broad Bean use of the name in English - unless that is of American derivation.

I think they are always called broad beans in Australia when they are fresh or frozen; sometimes fava beans when dried.

From Wikipedia:

Quoted from wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fava_bean
Vicia faba, the broad bean, fava bean, faba bean, horse bean, field bean, tic bean, or foul is a species of bean (Fabaceae) native to north Africa and southwest Asia, and extensively cultivated elsewhere. Although usually classified in the same genus Vicia as the vetches, some botanists treat it in a separate monotypic genus as Faba sativa Moench.......

.......In much of the Anglophone world, the name broad bean is used for the large-seeded cultivars grown for human food, while horse bean and field bean refer to cultivars with smaller, harder seeds (more like the wild species) used for animal feed, though their stronger flavour is preferred in some human food recipes, such as falafel. The term fava bean (from the Italian name fava) is commonly used in the United States (especially for beans grown for human consumption), but is also seen elsewhere, especially in Mediterranean recipes (this language shift can also be seen in the common use of the term "arugula" in the US for what in the UK is called "rocket").
