ISO sweet potatoes

We have a wide variety of supermarkets in our area (northern VA) yet I cannot find sweet potatoes in any of them. It's all those big, ugly yams and I loathe yams. They are definitely not the same as sweet potatoes - IMO they're dry and have little taste. What's going on? Our stores are local and national chains (Wegmans, Safeway, Giant, Harris Teeter). Are other areas selling sweet potatoes?
