where can i buy shishito peppers?

I bought some shishito peepers at the greenmarket last Sunday and put them in a breakfast burrito. Oh my lord, that was good. Now I want them every day and don't want to wait until next Sunday to get them. Any ideas about where they're sold regularly?

  1. Manhattan Fruit Exchange, I'm pretty sure. And Whole Foods, too, I think.

      Whole Foods often has them, but they haven't for the past few months. i've been looking regularly at the Columbus Circle location.

        They didn't have them at Union Sq WF.

          Sorry! That's where I saw them, but I guess things have changed. They were in the case next to the down escalator.

    2. Bodhi Tree farms at Union Sq green market, Sunrise Mart, Dainobu, Han Ah Reum

      1. so funny you mentioned this. I bought some this weekend, just charred them in olive oil, doused with sea salt and ate. awesome. But, i never see them around. Are they in season now? Is there a season for them?

          My plants are full of them right now, so I'd say if they have a season, now is certainly part of it.

            Only seen them in summer, should also try Padron peppers.

        2. Thanks for the suggestions. Sunrise Mart seems like it should be my first trip.
          I don't know about their season, but I'm totally obsessed at the moment. I'm thinking putting seared shishitos out with martinis for an easy cocktail party.

            pretty sure ive bought them at all times of the year at sunrise mart

            1. re: luckiestduck

              they're great with this yuzu powder, which you can find at Sunrise Market. it's how Ippudo serves them.


            2. Now try them with Stephanie Izard's sesame-miso-parmesan dressing...
