Pie cherries in the Charlottesville area?

I am trying to find sour pie cherries, frozen or fresh, in the Cville area. Have checked Cville market and Foods of All Nations. All I've found so far is some over-priced pre-made tart filler. Anyone know if Whole Foods, Kroger, the Teeter or anywhere else has a better alternative?

Thanks!

    I grew up near Charlottesville with three Montmorency Cherry (sour cherry) trees in our yard. Sour Cherry ripening time was the early weeks of June; anything that's for sale now is driven in from afar.
    And there probably was no local cherry crop this year; the Easter Freeze wiped out most fruit crops except for some early or late apples.

      Try the South board, that's where the Cville locals tend to hang and chat chow.
