What's a good substitute for palm sugar?

Light brown sugar
Measure the brown sugar, pack it down, allow it to dry and harden and it's almost indistinguishable from a block of palm sugar. To use it, grate it into your recipe or melt it with a liquid. Or you could check an Indonesian or Thai grocery for coconut sugar (the sap from the coconut palm, not because it tastes like coconut).

Muscavado sugar is closer to palm sugar than other sugars.
Even turbinado sugar will work in a pinch.
