Where can I find vanilla beans in the South Bay?

I'm planning to make creme brulee for v-day and I did not have the foresight to order online (I posted in the wrong section on CH last week but it got removed and I'm only reposting now).

Any idea where I can find good quality vanilla beans in the Sunnyvale/Santa Clara area?
Does Whole Foods sell them?

Thanks Chowhounders!

PS- I plan on making butter-poached lobster tails too (a la Thomas Keller), but have not decided on accompaniments/side dishes yet. Any suggestions?
