Green plantains in Berkeley area

I've suddenly got a craving for tostones. Anybody seen rock-hard green plantains around Berkeley lately? Ripe plantains are *no* use for this dish.
In answer to the obvious question:
Does Monterey Market not have any? I thought I recently saw some over there, but wasn't specifically looking for them. Or maybe I was suffering hallucionations.
It's actually pretty hard to find green plantains around here. Most restaurants/stores seem to sell them ripe. I've actually seen some pretty good and green ones at 99-ranch. I'm not sure if there's one in the east bay. They were better than the green plaintains I got at a "latin store" in the Mission.
