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

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?

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.
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.

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.
