Fresh Edamame in Northeast Los Angeles?

KellyOfEchoParkNow May 21, 2012 04:57 PM

Does anyone know where we can find fresh edamame in Northeast Los Angeles? I haven't yet been to the Japanese market in downtown, although others in the area haven't been successful.

Heck, we'll even take suggestions for other neighborhoods (even go to the West side....) if we have to!

Thanks in advance!

    Did you ever find it? I'm looking too. I'm willing to drive anywhere.

      Any Trader Joe's should have fresh edamames, both shelled and whole pods. Many Costcos carry them as well, albeit in larger quantities.

        I should note that I'm looking for Fresh Edamame - so far I've only seen cooked/ready-to-eat from Trader Joe's, Costco, and every grocery store (so far)

          Trader Joes sells 2 types of frozen edamame -- cooked, and uncooked.

            i think that what KellyOfEchoPark is trying to point out is that frozen vegetables and fresh vegetables are two different things.
            i have seen fresh edamame at a farmer's market, but i can't remember which one nor what time of year i saw it.

            (also, for them that care, iirc, the costco stuff is imported from china)
