Where to find Frozen Cherries? Is this a seasonal thing?

Hey Chowhounders,

I saw the post on frozen mangoes and wanted to know if anyone knows where to find frozen cherries? Are they only available after the summer harvest in the freezer case? I have a really good chocolate cherry smoothie recipe I want to try that calls for frozen.

I have checked my local Loblaws and Whole Foods with no luck. I keep coming across cranberries. Anyone spot them?

  1. Try Fresh from The Farm - they often have frozen produce from Ontario.

    1. If you're anywhere near a Polish/Russian/Ukrainian/etc. market, try there. I know I've seen them at Yummy Market, and I'm pretty sure at a couple of other places.

      1. I usually buy my frozen cherries in pails from Loblaws around the first week of July. You could also try MacMillan Frozen Foods. They have all kinds of products including cherries. The location though, may not be convenient. Check out their website.

        1. FoodieGirl29 check out Highland Farms frozen section. I remember seeing they had a European brand of frozen fruits (I can remember the brand, but they were from Bosnia Herzogovina).

          If I recall, they had sour cherries, black cherries, "forest" berries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, black berries, figs and I think they also had plums and apricots.

          Anyway, I think that Highland Farms carry them all year round, so you may want to check them out.

          1. You might have luck at Stephanie's Village European Deli; the one I know about is in Richmond Hill at Bathurst/Elgin Mills but I think there is more than one? I can't remember frozen cherries but I know they did have frozen fruit including loganberries so chances are pretty good.
