Hasn't this already been answered? If you want to get small quantities, unreliably available, at exorbitant prices, go to City Super or Breeze Center or Jason's. If you want a larger amount more reliably available (probably cheaper for a single meal; definitely cheaper if used for more than one meal) go to the Jianguo Flower Market on the weekend and buy your own pots.
Definitely do not plan a dinner on the assumption that you'll find the relevant herbs at the Western supermarkets, because who knows what's available on a given day.
Tempo Gain, my Italian parsley is thriving this time, despite the two previous plants having died within a month or two. The secret is … well, I've treated it exactly the same as the two previous plants. Apparently there is no secret. Maybe a bird pooped/didn't poop in the pot this time.
