Where can I find good guanciale in Northern VA?

It's impossible to even find guanciale, let alone good guanciale. Most grocery stores don't even know what it is, including Whole foods and wegmans. So far I've tried the Italian Gourmet in Vienna. I don't know if they cured their own meats or imported them, but something about it seemed kind of off or funky, like it had been stored improperly. I'm gonna try Italian Store in Arlington, but I'm not too optimistic. Does anyone know if any farmer's markets nearby have a vendor that sell hard to find Italian cured meats?
