I think Grace In The Kitchen (Hazeldean Rd) might have it. My wife purchased some from there about a year ago.

I believe she asked for file powder and dried sassafras powder is what they gave her. At least, that is what was indicated on the spice bottle. Supposedly, they are the same thing.

Grace in the Kitchen and Kitchenalia both have carried it - call ahead to make sure.

pelican fishery should have it, or if you know someone at a restaurant you could ask if they would sell you spices-some places do that.

I know a bakery I go to they have sold me ingredients before, but it is a sweets bakery,
