Where can I find shelled pistachios?

It would seem like an easy thing to find, but since Morrow's Nut House closed (sigh) I don't know where to find shelled pistachios. I would like them roasted and salted.

I'm looking for a place in San Francsco, East of Twin Peaks, please.

    1. definitely trader joe's, unroasted and unsalted also.

      1. Ferry Building farmer's markets.

        1. Safeway (at least the one near me) has them in their roasted nuts stand.

            Yes, I saw them at Market/Church Safeway in SF last night.

          2. I know you asked for them shelled, though costco has some with shell on, roasted and salted at a good price.

            1. Alfieri Farms, the nut seller at Ferry Plaza and Civic Center markets.

              They have great walnut brittle and almonds too.

              (Aren't the ones at TJs in shells?)

                Trader Joe's has them shelled ...... they probably have some in shells as well.

                  I don't care for TJ's shelled pistachios. They are just not as crisp as the in-shell nuts. Perhaps they shell them first and then roast?

                  I think there at least two nut stands at the Civic Center market. Alfieri is one of them, but there is another one that sells in bulk. I got some really good shelled, roasted, unsalted pistachio from them.

                3. 22nd and Irving Market.
