I've been buying Kabocha Squash at H Mart and Whole Foods, although Whole Foods is more expensive and often does not always have it. Where else, other than farmer's markets, can you buy them? I am looking for common markets, and NO other kinds of squash, only kabocha. I am located in North Jersey. Thank You!

      With the growing popularity, I've been able to purchase kabocha at Stop & Shop's produce section. Usually set up beside the the yams and potatoes.

          Fairway usually has them in NY, yours might have them, too.
