  1. In tall baskets among the produce aisles at Uwajimaya. OK, brown, but green...

    1. Saar's market at the corner of Rainier and Henderson has them. I suppose you mean unroasted unhulled peanuts. Green peanuts are unavailable, since the plant drives the seed pod underground before ripening, and green peanut pods are tiny.

      They're a Southern Food, so if you live farther north you'd want to drive only to the Central District, since Seattle's highest population of Southerners is in its African American population.

        Boiled peanuts are also popular in Hawai'i (and China, I've heard?), which is probably why Uwajimaya carries raw peanuts (for home preparation.)

            Right after I posted this, they got them in at HT oaktree. Those guys are amazing

          2. Alverez Farms at the farmers markets is about to start harvesting peanuts. I heard them telling someone else that they could bring them unroasted nuts if they made prior arrangements.
