Shishito peppers - where can I find them in the North Bay or San Francisco?

I love shishito peppers, but they are hard to find. I recently bought some at the Nijiya Market near the Japan Center, but I'd like to find some other places. Any sightings? Thanks!

Japan Center
1581 Webster St, San Francisco, CA 94115

      Oh go ahead say Tokyo Fish. Librarian has got them at Nijya. Why should East Bay Shishito seekers be shut out? Neither should tongue twister aficionados, shut out Shishito seekers.

      I've found them at the Sunday Marin Farmer's Market at the vendor(s) that sell padrons. Usually from late July to September or so.
