Where to find fresh yuzu in Los Angeles? (Ideally westside)

Searching for the small Asian citrus fruit in L.A., ideally the westside or in Koreatown.

Thanks! (By the way, anyone grow a yuzu around here? I'd plant one .... )

    Not any help, but I bought a yuzu tree from San Gabriel Nursery and planted it last year. I got about 7 fruits from it. Also saw some good leaf growth, so I hope there'll be even more this year.

      L.A.'s climate is not ideal for a yuzu tree, BUT if you graft a yuzu branch onto a lemon tree, then I've seen success.
