Where can I find galangal in DC?

I know Thai Market in Silver Spring may have some, but I'd really like to get some today and don't have time to go all the way up there. Is anyone familiar with galangal being sold at a Whole Foods or Yes Organic Market within the city (NW)? TIA!

  1. If you can use ground thai ginger:

    Maybe Rodman's? I'd call first; Rodman's is always a crapshoot even for things they DO carry. And in fact calling might not help. Even f2f questions to the in-store staff usually result in incorrect info.

    Maybe Capitol Supermarket?

    1. Is there an H Mart or Asian Grocery store in DC, they sell it.

      1. Not in the city but,
        Thai Market or Hung Phat Grocery in Silver Spring, MD
        Eden Supermarket in Seven Corners, VA
