ISO fresh fava beans

Having indulged in these lovelies several times last week in Portland (one dish was so simple, just shelled and roasted in their skins at 425 degrees with salt and olive oil, best bar snack evah!) and in SF in April, it occurs to me I should tackle them myself. They are a bit fussy to shell and skin but yum! I made them once last year but can't for the life of me remember where I bought the whole beans. I haven't seen them in my usual haunts which makes me think I must have cast a wider net last season. Anyone seen them lately, ideally on the west side but will travel for favas?
