Fresh cherries anywhere in No Va?

I know the local season is short (I had just bought my cherry pitter when they vanished from Giant for the year) - but does anyone in Northern Virginia carry fresh cherries now, perhaps flown in?

    Yes, we're pretty well past the season to get U.S.-grown cherries, I haven't seen them in a long time, not even flown in from overseas somewhere. You might have to wait a few months.

      I asked the same question to the Ashburne Wegmans produce guy yesterday and he said not to expect anything for at least 45 days.

          Balducci's in Old Town had red cherries a few days ago.
