Place to buy super hot peppers locally?

So, my buddy that was planning on growing a bunch of really hot peppers (Chocolate habs, Ghost peppers, Trinidadian Butch Scorpions, etc.) just informed me that he flaked out for the year and he will not be growing anything. I feel defeated to say the least.

Is there anywhere locally (preferably in MPLS, but I am willing to drive within reason) that carries peppers of this caliber? Obviously Rainbow/Lunds/Kowalski's carry regular habs, but they have been pretty lame in the past when I have tried them. I used to at least be able to find actual hot habaneros at the UofM Farmer's Market, but last summer it seemed nobody grew them. I know you can buy dehydrated habs and ghost peppers at Midwest Supplies in SLP, but I would prefer fresh.

Has anyone else had this problem, or am I the only one that likes to cook atomically hot food?

Thanks.
