Where Can I Find Okra?

I need anybody to help me where I can find this kind of vegetable. Okra. I like this vegetable and I miss this. Lately, I have been craving for Filipino foods, and made me lose my appetite because my mind is on the Filipino foods.
.
Okra is often known as Lady's Fingers outside of the United States, and gumbo in parts of the United States and English-speaking Caribbean. Maybe there are some other names given to this kind of vegetable, but anyway, the picture alone explains what I mean.
.
I like eating it steamed or it could be with "Sinigang na Baboy". I love this on "Pinakbet", too. Actually, I basically love any kind of vegetables, and too much meat can lost my appetite in eating. I hope I can find Okra seedings and plant some on our backyard, but I wonder if it will grow in the cold weather like here in Michigan.

Rose, you quit Michigan and come away to India. You will get it 12 months of the year! It is a favourite of mine too.
