Looking for a source for a fresh ham with skin on?

I'm hoping someone can help me find a fresh ham/pork leg with the skin on. It can be boneless or bone in - the skin is the crucial part for a Puerto Rican holiday dinner. I have gotten it at Central Market in the past, but they said they "aren't coming in" with skin this year. I tried Johnny G's-no luck. I left messages with Lone Star and Lee's...tomorrow is the only day I have free to try and track this down....any advice?

    I saw them at Fiesta at 38.5 st. about two hours ago. Mammoth and with skin attached.

    Pierna de Puerco, I think they're $1.39 a pound.

      They are at my HEB in Georgetown, I'd assume other HEB's could get them.

          yep. They even have a whole leg occasionally.
