If anyone knows where to find fresh yuzu right now, it'd make for a very happy baker....I'm not certain it's available or whether it's out of season. I'm guessing a Japanese market might have it, but was hoping someone could clue me into a specific one that is carrying it now.

    Fresh may be tough, but you should be able to order from Perfect Puree of Napa Valley.

      Call sunrise mart. Not sure if they have them right now, but they do get them. They also sell bottled yuzu juice-although that wont help if you are looking for zest.

        2nd Sunrise Mart: they have them in season. They do have some good quality bottled juices if you only need that, though - check the ingredients and get one of the ones w/o salt, just the straight good stuff.

        I've also seen them at Whole Foods when they're in season - but only at the Chelsea location, for whatever reason. They were quite expensive, as I recall.

        You also might want to check Manhattan Fruit Exchange in Chelsea Market - they have all kinds of stuff, and their prices are usually pretty good for the quality.

          Alternatively, try Katagiri or Mitsuwa.

            Katagiri had them as of last Friday in their small vegetable section near the registers.
