Might anyone have a lead on where one could find poblano peppers in Vancouver?

Any help is very much appreciated!

Thank you.

    Have seen them at Whole Foods and El Sureno, would imagine they have them at the other latin american oriented shops and probably South China Seas Trading.

      Fresh, as well as dried?

          As a technicality, dried poblanos are known as ancho chilies. The dried can be found at all the places mentioned (I'm pretty sure WF would have them), in addition to Gourmet Warehouse.

        Poblano peppers are available regularly at Save On Foods, Price Smart and Superstore. They are of good quality and plentiful in supply.

          Thanks, bevo! I cannot recall spotting the peppers at these locations, but maybe they just landed in my blind spot. Will have another, better look.
