I've seen Cardamom in stores in the specialty spice area, you could check Whole Foods or New Seasons as well. I love the taste but there's nothing really like it. It's almost "cool" like Anise, but with a spice twist, not hot. Any recipies I've used with Cardamom usually include cinamon and cloves as well, to give you an idea of where it fits.
