Ingredient - Coconut; young, tender, soft meat only.

I live in Oakland and am trying to find this ingredient for a dessert recipe. I am willing to travel far and wide if necessary. This recipe calls for fresh young or immature coconut meat. The soft tender meat is key to the recipe. I can only find the mature coconuts at my usual grocery stores. I don't want to use anything jarred or canned. Should I be trying my local ethnic markets? Thanks in advance.
