Fresh bamboo shoots

Anyone know where I can buy fresh bamboo shoots? I'd like to be able to make the bamboo shoots appetizer from Szechuan Gourmet at home.

          Kam man, h mart, c mart, etc. all sell both prepared bamboo shoots in cans and marinated or pickled bamboo shoots in jars. Fresh shoots are more difficult to work with and are a rarer sight, especially this time of year.

            last time i was at hmart they were in the produce section. fresh as far as i could tell. not canned. that was months ago though so if they are seasonal you might be out of luck.

            Kam Man has large barrels of sliced BS that you scoop out

              Thanks all. I'll try hmart and then go from there.
