    This is the place that sometimes will have raw green peanuts: https://plus.google.com/110115610119670944428/about?gl=us&hl=en They also occasionally carry vegan burfee (made from cashews and pistachios instead of condensed milk although its not labelled as vegan)

    And here is the super gigante farmer's market:
    http://www.westnorritonfarmersmarket.com/
    They have a lot of exotic produce including purple potatoes, and sometimes green (in pod) garbanzos and/or raw green peanuts. It is a "fishy" place meaning they sell a lot of fish.

Make sure when asking for vegan Pizza to ask for Daiya cheese otherwise they won't put any cheese on it & choose any seasonal toppings. Also some times they have vegan desserts & soups.
