    I think that DeKalb Farmer's Mkt has had this at times, too. I assume you're talking about the same galanga used in Thai cooking (looks like fat ginger with bands around the roots).

      Maybe try Super H Mart. I think that if you find this in Atlanta it will be somewhere in Doraville or the Buford Highway corridor.

        You might try Buford Highway Farmer's Market.
