PDX Source for Green/Raw Peanuts in the Shell?

I'm a South Carolina transplant thinking about making my own boiled peanuts...

Any ideas about where I can find peanuts in the shell that aren't mature or fully dried?

I've heard that Asian groceries are a good place to try... but I'd be eternally grateful if someone would save me from driving all over town!


Or maybe the Cherry Sprout?
I know that they have a few specialty Southern items....

Thanks for your help!

  1. I got hooked on boiled peanuts in Alabama and was so glad to find raw peanuts at Uwajimaya, in Seattle. In PDX, there appears to be one at 10500 SW Beaverton Hillsdale
    Beaverton, (503) 643-4512, though I've not been there.

    1. I've bought them at New Seasons on SE 22nd and Division. In the produce section.

      1. OMG - also a SC native and have been trying to do the very same thing for a couple of years - they are my madeleines. Tried Sheridan's and they told me it was "illegal" to sell raw peanuts. I suppose it's right up there with the dangers of pumping your own gas.

        Haven't tried Uwajimaya but let me know if you find a source.

          Has anyone found a place yet? Was the New Seasons on 22nd still a good source? I am from Darlington SC.
