Fresh Padron Peppers locally?

rlh | Aug 9, 2012 09:39 AM

I just got an email from specialty food website La Tienda announcing hat Padron peppers are in season and available (by mail at $17.50 / lb with flat rate $15 shipping...) - theirs are US-grown with seeds from Galicia.

Has anybody seen this variety sold locally? I am not sure whether Toro gets them or uses shishito peppers as a (pretty tasty) approximation, but I would love to find an accessible, more affordable source for the actual Padron variety. Thanks!
