Heirloom tomato variety--Aunt Ruby's German Green

Someone had mentioned Aunt Ruby's German Green Tomatoes, an heirloom variety. Has anyone seen these at a farmers' market, roadside stand or grocery in the SF Bay area? Thanks!
Try Farmers' Markets or Berkeley Bowl.
A lot of people like Monterey Market but I'm not one of them--I often see produce that is in my opinion, not sellable. Today it was the boysenberries which I would have loved to buy, and the black raspberries, ditto. Moldy. Ick.
That said, it was very busy even on a weekday.
Terra Firma (Saturday farmers market in Berkelely) grows them but they're a late variety so likely some weeks off. You can get in touch with them and ask:
I got some at the Weds. downtown Santa Cruz Farmers Market (I know, this belongs on the California board), I'm just sayin.
One of my favorite green-when-ripe tomatoes...
