Where to buy dried hominy?

I've been looking for a place to buy dried hominy in Chicago. Preferably from a bulk bin, but will buy it pre-packaged.
Anyone know a good place?
I'm up in Edgewater, but willing to travel for a mega-awesome store.
(P.S. Mega awesome = has lots of other unique/hard-to-find food stuff.)
I'm looking for the same thing but in Charleston, south of Champaign. It's kind of sparse out here. Have you tried mom and pop mexican groceries?
It's sold at Cermak Produce on Kedzie at Bearteau, 2 blocks north of Irving Park Road, in frozen, dried, and canned form. I especially like to use the fresh frozen variety in soups, YUM!
Oh and while you are there, pick up a can of Juanita's Chicken Posole, really fantastic stuff!!....tastes nearly as good as homemade and more like a New Mexican style posole. Juanita's Posole is one of the very few canned soups that I will eat as I prefer everything made from scratch.
A lot of the little latino markets on Lawrence must have this, including: Supermercado Garivaldi, 1714 West Lawrence Avenue, Chicago, IL. They definitely have the canned, but I'm pretty dead sure they also have packaged dried hominy/posole.
i've recently purchsed some at supermercado, specifically one on west north ave (around 3300w, perhas?), but sorry i cant remember then name. i'm actually cooking some right now, and man it's taking forever! i soaked it overnight, and it's now been simmering for 4h+ and the kernels have just started to pop. did i do something wrong?
If you're in Edgewater, you're in luck, because they have dried hominy at the Cuban grocery store called Unique, and also at the Mexican/Balkan grocery story called Devon Market, both on Devon Ave in the block immediately east of Clark, on the dividing line btwn Edgewater and Rogers Park.
