Raw Peanuts

Does anyone know where to get raw peanuts around here? I just looked at Fry's on my way to work and they didn't have them so I thought I would ask here before I went on a wild goose chase tomorrow evening. I need them for Saturday morning so I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it to any of the local farmer's markets. Football season means boiled peanuts time for me : )

    Check with Lee's, Mekong or Ranch Market.

      I saw them at the Lee Lee's on 75th Ave and Cactus a couple weeks ago. I also recall seeing them in the past at Mekong.

        Both Lee's and Mekong have them for sure. I just don't know where the OP is in the Valley and whether any of those markets would be convenient. There are mor Ranch Market locations so I thought that might be a viable option (but I can't be sure all Ranch Markets carry raw peanuts).

          I don't mind traveling if they have them for sure. That'd be better than going to a bunch of places around here that may have them.

        Sprouts should have them in the bulk bins. They have 4 or 5 West Valley locations

        First thoughts: Seems like something Trader Joe's would reliably have. If it's not in the bulk section at WinCo, I'll be quite surprised.
