Does anyone know where you can get File Gumbo Powder (for making Gumbo) in the Boston area? Preferably downtown or south of the city. Thanks!
Try Marty's Liquors on Washington Street in Newton. I bought some there last month.

Cause I am a trouble maker. You could certainly make your own.
Sassafras grows wild just about everywhere in New England.
Pulverize in a coffee grinder...
Oooh, agreed. And it's so much more fragrant than the dried/pre-pulverized stuff you get in the grocery store.
If you're buying in a grocery, I'd go with Zatarain's.
Debra's in West Concord (by the commuter rail) definitely has it, but the absolute best source I've ever heard of is here:
If you don't want to go to Arlington you can order from Penzey's online.
Pretty sure Whole Foods has it.
I've gotten the Paul Prudhomme brand at WF.
I have a store brand (I think the 365 brand) from WF.
I've seen it at Penzey's on Mass Ave in Arlington and Christina's in Inman Square, Cambridge.
I would try Christina's Spice and Specialty Foods in Inman Square, Cambridge (next to East Coast Grill). I know its not south of the city, but they're supposed to be a good option. Otherwise, there are always online purveyors.
