Wholesale fruit (for an event)
Does anybody here have experience buying large crates of fruit from a wholesaler? I'm hosting an event for about 200 people and need to buy a crate of limes, and a crate of blackberries. Should I just go to Chinatown since it's already so cheap down there? Tips?
I'm wondering the same thing, as I am making 100 jars of jam for a wedding (strawberry/rhubarb, ginger/peach, and a mixed berry). So far, the best I've been able to come up with is Chinatown, or possibly making the drive to the Hunt's Point market. I'm even considering heading into Jersey for wholesale fruit, though I can't figure out where to go there. Am going to try searching those boards. If you found anything out, please let me know.
