market gardens in restos / organic seeds

I"m curious of any favorite restaurants maintain their own market gardens (都市農園?) where they grow their own veggies & other edibles. I would be delighted for any recommendations...also, I"m curious if there are any gardeners out there who might recommend places to buy organic/heirloom seeds. I have looked at the catalogs for Tane no mori, Sakata, and a bunch of other places, but was surprised to see mostly "garden variety" veggies, not the special Tokyo breeds (even Tokyo negi, but much much more...)I expected. But, maybe they are sold at smaller markets. I would love any suggestions--whether reachable by foot or on line or by post. Thanks!
