Looking for baby bell peppers -- help?

I'm striking out at the usual places -- Russo's, Waltham Fruit, Savenor's, Formaggio. Any ideas? This would be for Easter, so time is of the essence.

    I have seen them at Russos before. Maybe if you called them they could also get them for you.

      Thanks to all who replied (especially the nice person who CALLED Plum and asked for me!). I didn't find exactly what I was looking for, but I did find miniature sweet peppers at Trader Joe's (the ONLY place in the metropolitan area that had them), and have made a nice new contact at Plum.

        I've gotten them at the Cambridge Trader Joe's.

          I've found them at Costco in the past. Don't know if they have any now, though.

            I just saw them at the Waltham Costco not too long ago.

            I'll bet if you called Barbara Lynch's produce shop, "Plum" on Waltham street in the South End next to the Butcher Shop they'll make a noble attempt to get them for you. They do special orders all the time and have access to more purveyors than most.

            Plum is 617-423-7586

              I have gotten them before at whole foods. They sell them in a plastic container and they are red and yellow. Call whole foods and ask them to order them for you. They are expensive but cute.
