Where can I buy fresh lovage?

I am in culinary school and have a large class project coming up in about a month. One of our recipes calls for fresh lovage and so far, we've only been able to find it in a planter. But this is New York, someone must be selling bunches of it, especially considering the WSJ article from June 8-9 entitled "Summer of Lovage."

Any leads for me to run down? I called the Manhattan fruit exchange in Chelsea market, to no avail, and I have yet to see it at the Green Market in Union Square, though perhaps i'm overlooking it.

    I got some from the greenmarket last week... Can't remember what vendor though.

        Oh that's amazing, thanks for posting, I'll try to find them and strike a deal for July, when I actually need it.

          Hi Kathryn, a big thanks to you! I went early Saturday morning and talked to Keith's farm. It looks like they're going to have it throughout the summer and i should be able to get it for my project.
