Marin store for unusual spices & herbs?

When I lived in SF, Rainbow Grocery was my go-to for spices and herbs that I couldn't find in a typical grocery store. Now I live in San Rafael and am looking for a place that's closer to me. Right now I'm making root beer and need things like dried sassafras root and wintergreen leaves. Any tips?
Marin's Allstar Organics website says its herbs are sold at Woodlands in Kentfield and Good Earth Natural Foods in Fairfax. Perhaps those stores might have other items that would be up your alley.
Indian markets are also a good place to poke around. I haven't been there, but others have posted about Malabar Indian Store in San Rafael.
