Could be tough. A Asian store that specializes in Indian or thai will somtimes have the whole pods. Most is sold in a paste with the seeds and 'meat' of the pod usually in the chilled section. You soak those and pick out the seeds and strain out the paste.

Try your local Asian market. They commonly sell it by the boxful.
