Fresh Parsley Root?

Had a delicious soup in Denmark made with parsley root and saw it fresh in the market but have never seen/heard of it here. Any leads? The soup was wonderful!!!!

        Describe the soup, please. Is it similar to celery root?

          It's closer to parsnips or dandelion root, but it has a unique flavor.

            The soup we had in Denmark was much like a celery root creamy soup....white/lite cream in color with subtle seasoning. Similar to a Cream of Horseradish soup we enjoyed in Ely, England and have adopted for our Christmas dinner but without the horseradish "kick".
            Thanks for the suggestions on places I might get parsley root!
