Seeking sources for fresh chilies

A.A. | Aug 21, 2006 09:48 PM

Hi all---

I'm searching for Boston area sources that regularly have a good variety of fresh chilies in stock. I'm specifically looking for fresh chilies used in Mexican and South American dishes.

I expected to not have any luck searching local grocery stores for more exotic peppers such as rocoto, mirasol, or other "aji" chilies, but I'd have thought that certain varieties, such as fresh Anaheim chilies, would be easy to locate--- not so much. I usually see only the standard jalapenos, serranos, habaneros, and (usually) poblanos.

If someone could point me in the direction of a decent supermarket, ethnic grocer, or farmer's market in the Boston area that could help me out, I'd really appreciate it. Failing that, I'd be willing to hear recommendations for a good online vendor (though I assume that would be more expensive.)

Thanks!
