Question Where to buy vegetable seeds?

Does anyone know where in the port or town you can buy veg seeds? We're particularly looking for ones for the pale green peppers (pimientos blancos) to make trampo. We'd also like some for those massive spring onions you can sometimes get. Any suggestions please? We're hoping to try growing them at home.

Also does anyone know if you can buy the sweet white onions at the moment (also used in trampo)? We bought some onions in Hiper but they were the strong sort (ruined my gazpacho!). I think I'm looking for cebolla dulce & not seca?

There are quiet a few garden shops in the town, they sell seeds, plants etc, some on the main street near the crossroads, also saw a few around the back streets but only stumbled across them so no directions possible.
Good luck trying to find them, I looked for Spanish onions sets here to grow without much luck!

Its called Can Fusteret, you can choose the seeds here on goggle earth https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@39.87...ag5suJ1jOg!2e0

We found Can Fusteret this morning and bought 2 packets of seeds - the brand is Batlle. We chose Cebolla - Blanca de Pompei (hoping they're spring onions!) - see Semillas Batlle | White Onion from Pompei & Pimiento Amarillo Ros de Mallorca Semillas Batlle | Majorcan Gold Pepper - not really sure if these are the pimientos blancos - will see how we get on!
