The closer to SM/Venice the better. The only place I've seen them is Samosa House. However, they usually don't have them.

      wednesday farmers market - coleman farms usually has them
      also, 99 ranch markets have them. one is freeway close - victory and sepulveda in the (shudder perhaps for you) valley.

        I have never seen curry leaves at the Van Nuys 99 Ranch. I buy them from Valley Produce or when I make my trips to India Sweets and Spices to load up on my groceries.

          Jerome,

          I can confirm Coleman Farms, but right now they are not ready to pick. Should be available in abundance in about a month they say. However, once they are, freeze then and they keep very well.

          Thanks to both of you. Penzey's told me the SM farmer's market has them as well, but I work on Wednesdays and the Saturday market doesn't have them.

            Ask someone at the Coleman Farms stand for a card. Call during the week and request them to be brought to the Saturday market and they'll do so for you. But as stated above, they aren't offering them yet.

              also, call the thai markets, like bangluck and see if they carry it. and check out the thai name just in case.
