thai basil and Korean chili paste in Ann Arbor?

Hi All,
Does anyone know where I could find fresh thai basil in the Ann Arbor area? The Chinese grocery on Washtenaw only had one half-rotted bunch. Also, is there an Asian grocery where I could find kochujang and ssamjang?

Thanks much!

      Thank you! My mistake has been going to Chinese markets, it seems.

        re: Basil ,it's hit or miss here, better off to grow your own.
        The last 2 Sunday markets of the year at the Thai Temple in Warren are this Sunday Oct 7 & Oct 21st, They usually have wonderful home grown herbs but it is a bit far to go!

    2. Maybe Z Z's Produce
      4092 Packard Street
