Where to buy rhubarb in LA?

Can't seem to find rhubarb in L.A. I checked the local farmer's markets and also the grocery stores, but nothing. The only rhubarb-ish plants I see are swiss chard. Anyone know where I can buy some to make pie?

    I see it at the Saturday farmers market in Santa Monica on Third/Arizona.

      I got some at Whole Foods the other day. I think it was the Glendale one but they should all have it.

          Gelson's (at least the one in Irvine) almost always has it.

            I just bought a few bunches at the Hollywood Farmer's Market - hopefully the seller will be back next week!

              At the Hollywood Farmers' Market, on the west side of Ivar, south of Selma. A small stand run by an older man and woman. They also sell avocados and some citrus. Good stuff.

                Bought some at the Pavillions at Vine & Melrose. Used it to make a peach / rhubarb pie which came out wonderfully! PS I bought the peaches at Johns at .99 cents for 2lbs! They were perfect for pie.

                  I just used my Rhubarb that I got at the Pasadena Farmer's Market (Saturday Mornings at Pasadena High School) to make strawberry-rhubarb jam. The herb lady (next to the "most delicious honey in the world lady") has it right now.
