Bay area source for fresh Epazote?

Can anyone recommend a source for the fresh Mexican herb - Epazote? I'm going to be making a new dish with it, and have not been able to locate it yet.

    1. I've seen it at Berkeley Bowl with the herbs that are near the leafy organic produce.

      1. I think I have also seen it at Monterey Market.

        1. I've found it at the produce market one block away from La Palma (same side of 24th street).

          1. Thank you all!! I live in Mill Valley so will try the SF places first.

              I bet you could find it and one of the Mexican grocers in San Rafael. And Sundays at he Civic Center farmers market, the two gals from Oaxaca in the center aisle often have it and other interesting quelites from Oaxaca as well.

                Thanks! I usually go to the Thurs. Farmer's Market at the Civic Center, but since I usually don't do Mexican cooking hadn't looked around there.
