Where can you buy edible lavender?

Lavender you can eat is labeled as "culinary lavender." It's sold both fresh and dried at many spice shops, farmers markets, and health foods stores, as well as chains like Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. If the lavender isn't specifically labeled as "culinary," you'll want to double-check and make sure that it's safe to eat.
