Candied lemon peel or citron?

I want to make lebkuchen and I need candied lemon peel or citron. Does anyone know a good place to buy some? I'd prefer something a bit higher end than the fluorescent packs of candied fruit for fruitcake. I looked at Rainbow in Uptown (nothing, but I wasn't hopeful) and at Whole Foods on Excelsior (no luck). I basically want the King Arthur kind without having to order online. Any ideas?

Also: when I was at Whole Foods and asked a clerk to help me find it, she made a few calls to different departments and while we were waiting, she was trying to convince me that I should make it "with fresh fruit." "I bet some fresh fruit would be great." Ugh. It was totally condescending while also clueless. Annoying.

  1. I'm interested in this too. After searching high and low, I did mail order a couple years back (checking my Amazon history, looks like it was Barry Farm), but wasn't any happier with the product than the fluorescent stuff.
