I live in the Los Feliz area and I need to find it for work and am not having any luck. Any pointers are appreciated.

    Have you tried ethnic markets?

    Just about any of the Chinese or Vietnamese grocery stores in the SGV carry yucca root, as do most Hispanic grocery stores. I want to say that I've seen it at Filipino markets as well, but can't be sure.

      I bought some at the 99 Ranch in the San Fernando Valley.

          figueroa produce in highland park/eagle rock is an amazing little grocery store that also happens to have yucca root.

            Thanks for all your tips, you guys really are the best. I actually ended up finding at Jons in Glendale. I will definitely be checking out Figueroa produce in the future.
