frozen fava beans?

I discovered yesterday that Whole Foods no longer stocks frozen fava beans. They discontinued the item nationally (my friend from Washington, making the same fava-bean dip for her own Seder, texted me in a panic from her local Whole Foods a few minutes after I failed to find them at the Potrero Whole Foods).

I loved these frozen favas for pureeing, as well as for blanching and tossing with stubby pasta and guanciale for a quick dinner. Of course fresh is tastier, but the convenience of frozen favas year-round is often worth it.

Do any markets in San Francisco have frozen favas?
