Where can I find freshly dried or fresh Sumac in West LA? Packaged Sumac I've found has been rancid...

Does anyone know where I can find freshly dried, or fresh Sumac preferably in Santa Monica or very nearby areas of West LA?: I'd only had freshly dried Sumac at an upscale Persian restaurant before... went to a local Persian market & bought some packaged Sumac, it was a bit rancid. I went back & bought a package distributed by another company in a thicker more air-tight plastic package & it was still rancid. I know some people can notice rancidity more than others-- has anyone had this experience & can tell me where I can find either some that's reliably not rancid... packaged or fresh?
Thank you!
