Where to buy fresh sugarcane? (Not juice)

kloh | Aug 13, 200912:10 AM     11

Hello! I'm on a quest for fresh sugarcane. Preferably whole but those vacuum pack ones are... okay.

I've tried Berkeley Bowl, Oakland Chinatown (though if you know of a place here, maybe I missed it!) and a couple Ranch 99s -- to no avail. It seems kind of ridiculous that fresh sugarcane is unavailable in the bay area.

Ideas?

*Note: Ranch 99 sells those vacuum pack deals, but both times I've bought them, they were bad (sour) right away (opened them as soon as I got home).
