Where can I get gumbo z'herbes all year round?

I've never had it before, and I'm too impatient to wait until Good Friday - thanks!

    The Gumbo Shop in the French Quarter usually has it on the menu year round, but especially now because it's Lent. Or try Dooky Chase.

      I've had it at the Gumbo Shop and enjoyed it.

      I have not seen it on a menu in awhile..the last time was in Donaldsonville..and a friend who is 75 and who grew up in the Plaquemine/Donaldsonville area---and who knows from good food---said he'd be happy if he never saw it again. Said he'd rather eat his lawn cuttings.

          Langenstein's grocery sells it frozen and in the refrigerated foods section....
