Where can I find Purslane?

I don't believe I've seen any at the west side farmers markets...unless I'm overlooking it.

  1. Any decent-size Mexican market. It's called verdolagas in Spanish.

    1. It's hard to find at Farmer's Markets... SOMETIMES it shows up in Hollywood... but it's only that one organic vendor at the intersection. The best bet is at Mexican Supermarkets although I find the quality can REALLY vary...


      1. Haven't seen it at Farmer's Markets. However, both Vallarta Markets (everywhere) and the Jon's Market (in Reseda) carry it regularly

        1. I have seen it at mostly Mexican markets like Liborio.

          1. Super King Market (on San Fernando Road) has it. Three bunches a dollar.
