Where can i find real cinnamon in the LA area, preferably from Sri Lanka?

Unfortunately, many people don't know that the cinnamon sold in the USA is actually not cinnamon, but is actually a cousin of cinnamon called Cassia:

As opposed to real cinnamon:

So, does anyone know where i can find the real stuff in LA?-I've tried Whole food with no luck.

Thanks,
