Where to source split, dry Fava Beans or Broad Beans

Please can anyone tell me where i can buy online or in Southern California the kind of split dried Favas that are so common in Italy. SPLIT is the key word. Puree di Fava is one of my favorite Pulgiese dishes but I have been unsuccessful in sourcing the main ingredient.

Try this store -- you can order online, and it looks like they carry what you're looking for:

Whole Foods carries them in DC and Maryland. They are in the bulk food bins. I use them frequently!

Thank You Maedi,
Here in Santa Barbara Whole Foods they don't supply the split Favas but I shall try the Whole Foods in Venice when I am there on Friday.

There's a feature on Rancho Gordo Beans on this web site. The beans Steve Sando grows are exemplary. I would order from him.

Have you tried any Middle Eastern or Ethiopian markets in your area? I'm sorry I don't have familiarity with a specific store, but I often see that type of bean, usually in a bulk bin.
