Hello all, I was just curious if anyone knows where fresh/frozen black raspberries can be purchased. Thanks for any help.

    I think your best bet for fresh ones would be Harvest Wagon, they have a location on Yonge (near Summerhill) and on Eglinton E. I would call first though!

      They have frozen ones at Whole Foods.

      The last time I saw fresh black raspberries was at the farmers market over the summer.

        My SO and I took a drive up north today and took a detour over to Scotch Block Winery. The winery specializes in fruit wines and attached to the wine retail room is there food store. In their chest freezers are pounds upon pounds of strawberries, blueberries, wild blueberries, currants AND black raspberries. They are about $3.50/lb and they package them in 2lb bags. It might be a nice drive up to visit the winery if you had the time.
        Directions: Hwy 401 W to Trafalgar North (Exit 328). Drive N approximately 7 km to Sideroad #10. Drive W to farm.

          The fruit markets at Danforth and Logan had imported "fresh" black raspberries in plastic clamshell packages today. Sorry didn't note the price. These will be imports from Mexico or Chile.

            I think any raspberries you find now will be imports. Just make sure they aren't from China
