Where to buy stuff around Seattle

like me right now I'm looking for a source, mail order OR local, for fresh citrons. Any ideas? I can sub lemons if I have to, but they're really fairly different...

Unfortunately, citron is a bit ambiguous as it's used one way by pastry chefs (usually short for glace lemons or citron glace), one way by people trying to translate Korean or Japanese, and another way by Africans, another way by French people... I'm sure there are more.
Yuzu is hard to come by but you'll start to see it at the Seattle location of Uwajimaya at about $25-50/lb, often underripe and tiny, sometime this fall. There is one guy growing yuzu in Washington, from what I hear, with the intention of commercial production.
Decent yuzu juice can currently be found in Uwajimaya's refrigerated section, but availability varies. 200 ml is $11 or so, fairly decent quality.

Central Market Poulsbo has Budda Hand Citron in the Produce Section so I'm sure your market from the same parent chain probably also has it. I saw blood oranges at Pike Market the other week.

But on the Che Guevara highway filling up with gasoline
Fidel Castro's brother spies a rich lady who's crying
Over luxury's dissapointment
So he walks over and he's trying
To sympathize with her, but thinks that he should warn her
That the Thirld World is just around the corner

Thanks Laurie they did have that there!
The Soap Box at 45th and University Way has a big selection of Pre de Provence (I had some wonderful lemon verbena lotion and bubble bath purchased there), so they may have the lavendar.
