Where to buy shishito peppers in Palm Beach county?

I tried calling the Fed Hwy Oriental Market in Boca and a language barrier prevented me from getting any answers.
I looked at Fresh Market, Whole Foods to no avail.
was on the verge of ordering from Mitsuwa Japanese market in New Jersey until I realized that a $15 worth of peppers would cost about $80 to ship.
Anyone know of something a bit closer? Thanks!
I've recently had these at Kapow in Boca, and somewhere else I can't remember (possibly Tryst in Delray).
I will ask around some folks that are/were affliated with those places... more soon...
Oriental Market does not have (or apparently even know of by that name).
Even in person, language barrier is tough. Jerry McGuire says "You had me at hello!". In this place, it's "You lost me at hello".
On a redeeming note, they do have appx 1 lb frozen slabs of pork belly ($3/lb). Perhaps not the ideal source but it gives me something to play with for my now upcoming first p/b cooking experiment.
Little India market also did not have nor know of "shishito" peppers.
I just returned from tripto NYC and NJ.
I found the peppers at Han Ah Rheum(HMART)
they were delicious-it was the first time I ate them.
They also had them at MITSUWA
You might also check New York Mart in Sunrise
I'm told C&D Produce in WPB and also on Military in Lake Worth has them... but I cannot verify for sure.
Will work on that...
I've seen them at Foodtown in Davie in the past, but they haven't had them recently. I'd have a look at their WPB store (Military Trail & 45th.)
I have seen and bought them at Foodtown in Davie but they don't always have them. Or try New York Market in Sunrise. Both are very large Asian grocers. You might be up against the same language barrier if you call.
