    Are you talking about in a restaurant or buying the fresh vegetable?

      I've had it at ABC Kitchen, which buys it from the Union Sq. greenmarket. I've also eaten shishitos at Little Giant in the LES.

      I've bought shisitos from:
      1) Norwich Meadow Farms
      2) Lan's farms (only there on Mondays)

        Union Square Greenmarket is where I go, too, usually at Lani's Farm or Bodhitree. BTW, Lani's Farm and Bodhitree used to be Yuno's Farm but they split up.

        Shisito peppers are in season right now, and not for long....

        Lani's Farm schedule:
        Monday: Union Square Greenmarket
        Wednesday: Dag Hammarskjold & Tribeca
        Thursday: Colombia
        Saturday: Tribeca
        Sunday: Carroll Gardens

        Bodhitree Farm:
        Wednesday and Friday: Union Square
        Saturday: Abingdon Square

        I'm not sure where they are on other days, if they're in the city at all.

              You can get them at Katagiri. I wouldn't be surprised if Sunrise Mart also had them. There is a farmer that sells plants at the USQ greenmarket which I purchased in May and which is now fruiting beautifully.

                They also carry padrons which offer interesting comparison.
