Where to find Young coconut water and Taro root vegetable?

And also when to find if they are seasonal. I am ok if the young (green) coconut water is packaged.

Coconut water = kookosvesi, ekolo.fi life.fi ruohonjuuri.fi even markets might have that. Green coconuts... not likely to be seen here.
Taro you most likely can't find. Finnish name taaro, if that helps.

according to wiki, taro is arrow root which I think I have seen somewhere in Helsinki.
potential places:
shops in Kallio
stockman
K kauppa at Kamppi
ruohojuuri etc...

Not the powder, the actual vegetable. I have seen something that looks like caasava which is kind of close to taro root in an asian specialty market in turku (i live in turku so). Thanks for the reply. I wish there is some brand that sells young coconut water. That's so unfortunate :(

I've found both Taro root and casava in a K citymarket in Seinäjoki, so as a guess you should be able to find it in Helsinki K group somewhere. :D The hard thing to find is young taro leaves for Palusami :(

This is really irritating, people constantly asking something about WHERE and them not telling where they themselves are located (so the presumption is helsinki and finland). Why to waste our time?

I listed three online shops that had that water. All you had to do was to check the the brands and see if they are available in local market(s). Or just make an order online.

Sorry for the bother but I did not feel the need to put location because I have no problem to go to Helsinki and buy those things. Besides I know Helsinki has a lot more options than Turku and people tend to know more about where to find things in Helsinki than Turku for obvious reason. I didn't want to limit response for my convenience. I accidentally found cassava on my way shopping so i replied with my location. Thanks for the reply ^_^

I have only seen arrow root powder, never seen the vegetable. If you meant the vegetable then I should buy some! This seems to be very different in texture than taro http://www.foodsubs.com/Tubers.html
