fresh lemongrass?

Hi all,
Does anyone know where to get fresh lemon grass in DC or Silver Spring? I'm pretty desperate and don't have a car to get out to the Asian places in No Va. Thanks. -redlybarian

  1. i didn't look for lemon grass specifically but i'm pretty sure the thai grocery store attached to nava thai in wheaton has it. (dunno if need a car to get there.)

    1. have you checked at Safeway on Wisconsin, or Whole Foods?

          I recently purchased lemongrass at Whole Foods (P St). it was in a little plastic box (so fresh? who knows when it was cut). When used in cooking, it was just fine.

        3. I've purchased it at Wholefoods in SS and it was fine. It was sold loose - not in a box at that particular store.
