Where to buy fresh ginseng root?

Can anybody recommend places that sell fresh ginseng root? In terms of location, I'd like to stay within L.A. and the SGV. Thanks in advance.

  1. TS Emporium -- either in Chinatown or Monterey Park.

    Wing Hip and Sai Fong are also good choices.

    Heck, if you drive down Valley Blvd. between Del Mar and Rosemead you'll probably come across at least a dozen or so herbalists that have fresh whole ginseng root.
