fresh, in-shell soybeans / edamame

Anyone know where I can find fresh, never frozen raw soybeans in the bay area? We honestly can't believe this, considering they are possibly the #2 American vegetable product (next to corn). But I've checked at all my key players (Nijiya, Tokyo Fish, 99 Ranch, Yaoya San, and random places in SF and OAK chinatowns) in SF and the east bay and I can't find any. Trader Joe's has shelled (frozen or no?) soybeans but they're really quite expensive for the product.

Normally you would find them in bunches on stem in the produce aisle. Any tips appreciated.
