      John at Soiled Reputation grows some padron peppers but last I heard the whole production of them is spoken for by restaurants.

      There's a special Spanish delicatessen place at the SE corner of Eglington and Mount Pleasant. Not sure about its name though!

            I agree, Pasquale Brothers will either have what you are looking for or will suggest somewhere else to look. I shop there regularly because the owner (Anna Marie) and staff (Robert) are very knowledgeable about their products and love to cook. I know they have white anchovies, fabulous selection of olives, wonderful smoked peppers, ingredients for paella and all sizes of paella pans, wonderful Spanish olive oils, the list goes on. Only open during the week. If you don't see what you want, ask because they have a warehouse in behind.
