Poblano Peppers in the West End

Before I start calling around, does anyone happen to know where I'd be likely to find poblano peppers in the West End? (NDG, Westmount, CSL, etc.) Or even the western part of downtown?

Or whether Sami Fruit in LaSalle normally carries them?

Thanks a bunch!

      Thanks for the tip - I should have specified, I need them fresh.

      Rocky Montana on Sherbrooke doesn't have them but might get some in tomorrow. Sami Fruit in LaSalle doesn't know what they are and doesn't know if they have any. :-\

      Will try Fruiterie Atwater as I got a tip they might have some. Will report back!

        No need to specify. There's no such thing as a dried poblano. When they're dried they are called ancho chilies.

    2. Poblano chile success at Fruiterie Atwater at the market. Yay! FYI they had quite a few other hard-to-find things, like baby pattypan squash.

      1. Sami in Lasalle generally does not carry them
