Anyone know a reliable source of jicama in SD?

  1. Readily available all over, Mexican markets all stock it. Windmill Farms in Del Cerro always has it in a basket by the onions and potatoes. Pancho Villa on El Cajon always has it.

    1. Amongst many other places, I know Whole Foods has it.

      1. I have seen it at Wholefoods, Ralphs, Vons, Albertson, Major, Jimbos.

            My bad thought you were looking for Jimaica (Hibiscus Flower). Hard not to find Jicama.

            Wow, Vons? I hadn't even bothered looking, I figured no way. I'll check our Vons tonight.

            Thanks all.

          3. California Produce and North Park Produce

            1. The Asian grocery stores in City Heights would be an excellent source.
