Wok in SEA? Also Meyer lemons.

I think I'd like to pick up a small simple steel wok. I saw them in SF last week for under $15 but didn't want to lug a wok on the plane. Any specific suggestions for somewhere in town to pick up something similar?
Anyone seeing Meyer lemons in stores right now? they come and go, and now I know I should have bought some in SF where they were right off the tree.
PCC has Meyer Lemons, or at least did last week when I was in there. I believe Ballard Market has them also. You can always just call ahead to any store to see if they have them.
Uwijamaya in the International District has a bunch of Woks, though some of the name-brands run quite expensive. I'm sure many of the stores down in that area have a good selection of cheaper woks. Be wary of woks that are pre-coated/seasoned. You may not want this.
all the ranch 99 stores carry small, inexpensive woks - get the heavy carbon steel and season it like cast iron; buying lightweight metal or stainless steel makes for uneven heating and non-stick is a huge mistake for something that works best at high temperatures
meyer lemons are available at several stalls in pike place market
