Sour Cherries in NYC Area

Does anyone know where I can find sour cherries in the NYC area? Thanks.

  1. I saw them at Eli's Vinegar Factory on Saturday, but I'm sure they must be available elsewhere (and cheaper!).

    Eli's Vinegar Factory
    431 E 91st St, New York, NY 10128

    1. the greenmarket on 97th & columbus has had them the last few weeks (which probably means that union square will have them -- check on to see what's there).

      1. I saw them at the Union Square Greenmarket on Sat

        1. re: Lucia

          They were all over the Greenmarket Saturday. I'm sure there is someone there with them today!

        2. Saw them at the Union Sq Greenmarket last week, and saw them in season last year at the Tompkin Sq park greenmarket (on Sundays). You can get Marco Polo brand sweetened jarred sour cherries year-round at Fairway--it's adequate, but I'm not in love with the stuff.

            I bought fresh ones at the uptown Fairway this Friday.
