  1. I frequent the Encino market, and unfortunately, don't see any vendors selling pom's anymore. They have a pretty short season. I love buying the fresh pom juice that some of the vendors sell.

    Persimmons, another of my winter fave fruits, are gone also until next year.

    Oh well, there's always apples and oranges...(boring, I know)....

    1. I've seen them at Jon's Market in Reseda as recently as last friday.

      1. I bought some at Von's in Santa Monica recently, though I don't know if they still have them....Do you know the trick of "seeding" them in a bowl of water? No stained clothes and a lot more pods come out without being squished.

        2. I saw some Sunday at Erewhon on Beverly just east of Fairfax.

          1. I saw them at Whole Foods in Long Beach last night.

            1. I just bought some at Trader Joe's (in West Hollywood) this past weekend.

              1. i saw some yesterday at Trader Joe's in Studio City

                1. Latino and Armenian markets carry them. That means Jons, Vallartas or the like will have them.

                  1. I've also seen them grown at Cal Poly Pomona, though not sure if they sell them, they have a farm store.

                    1. Persian markets in LA usually have them. I saw some at Super California a couple of weeks ago in Winnetka. You might also try Jordan Market or the other markets in Westwood on Westwood Blvd. In the Valley, there's also Woodland Hills Market on Ventura Blvd.
