I'm looking for somewhere that sells tasty and unusual dried fruit...strawberries, kiwis, mango, etc. for cheap! Any suggestions?

    I would suggest Trader Joe's, they have a wide variety of dried fruits. Good luck!

      I would try the Asian grocery stores. H Mart (Korean with several locations) has a wide selection of inexpensive dried items and I would be really shocked if they don't stock dried fruit. I for sure can tell you that my local Thai grocery (Hung Phat in Wheaton) has oodles of exotic fruit --stuff I don't even recognize.

        agree- Trader Joe's has the best-- unfortunately everything's packaged, so not always easy to get the quanity you want. The dried orange-flavored cranberries-- fantastic in oatmeal.

          Update-I was at H Mart today and as expected they had all variety of dried fruit from persimmons to lombak (sp?). H Mart has locations in Wheaton and NoVa
