Both are readily available in my area.
Fresh banana peppers are usually available in every grocery store I shop at. Right next to the red and green bell peppers. In the produce section.
Pickled banana peppers are available in every store I have walked into. Mount Olive and Vlasic are the two that come to mind.
You can also get banana pepper rings. Hot or mild.
Right next to the pickles.
It looks like you are in Cali? Seems you would have a much better ability than I have to get the peppers you want.
You are mistaken. When I lived in Ohio and Kentucky, banana peppers (fresh or pickled in jars) were readily available. As were White Castle hamburgers, those little round orange-colored waffle cheese crackers, and various other regional items I've had to do without once I moved here. Only Vlasic pickles are available...banana peppers are MIA, and have been for the last twenty years. I've never seen the Mount Olive brand here. Never assume that because an item is available there its is the same here.
We have Clover brand milk that is the best I have ever tasted. Probably you won't find it at your supermarkets. Some items seem to be strictly regional. Banana peppers may be available here, but if so, its a well kept secret!
