Turkish simit in/near DC?

Just got back from Istanbul and I'm craving some Turkish food. Was lucky to find sour cherry juice at The Mediterranean Bakery in Alexandria but I can't seem to find any simit-only bagels and pita. Can anyone help?

    Cenan's Bakery in Vienna, VA sells Turkish specialties. When I first looked at the list of breads (See URL below) I didn't spot simit which confused me since I know I've bought simit there.

    I next went to the Bakery link and discovered simit under the category of Turkish specialties. The second link will take you to the list of bakery products.

      I've also seen them at Amity in Fairfax, but I think Cenan's is better.

        I stopped by Cenan's Bakery today (Thursday). They had no pita today. After I questioned them more closely they finally said they only have pita on Friday and Saturday. I would call to make sure.
