Bulk Fresh Peppermint in LA?

I'm making homemade Peppermint Schnapps to give away for Christmas and I've seen tons of recipes that call for Peppermint extract but I'd like to use fresh if I can find it. Does anyone know where I can get fresh peppermint in bulk in LA?? The recipe I'd like to use calls for 8 cups (!!) of fresh mint leaves and I'll probably double it. Thanks!!

  1. Fresh mint is usually spearmint, but you might find peppermint. Peppermint is more delicate , smaller leaves. I have seen large bunches of spearmint at the Kosher Market in WEst LA, on Santa Monica, and really good prices on all their vegies. I would check any good kosher or persian market that might be close to you.
