Hi everyone. I would just like opinions/suggestions on places in the GTA that have the most amazing variety of fruits, especially berries. Any help would be much appreciated.

    If price is no object, I'd suggest the Harvest Wagon, Pusateri's or McEwan.

      Concord Fruit Centre at Dufferin & Centre Street, if you're up in that neighbourhood! We're never disappointed.

          Berries, maybe some exotics. Hoping for great variety so that I can be flexible and can get ideas.

            In terms of quality and exotic quotient

            #1- Harvest Wagon (Eglinton east of Spadina) or Yonge and Summerhill is the best and by far priciest.

            #2 Summerhill Market

            #3 Pusateris

            #4 Concord fruit is great, but not exotic. The prices are very fair at Concord.

            #5 Sun Valley on the Danforth

              I haven't been to Harvest Wagon, but how does that compare to the fruit available at the Cheese Boutique? I see items there that are not commonly found at other places.

                Generally a larger selection at Harvest Wagon (I'm only familiar with Summerhill location) than Cheese Boutique ... similar pricing

              Still no clue what you want(berries? What kind?). Everything's imports now. Wait a few weeks for the Ontario crops to come in. Shop T&T for Asian exotics.

            I'd go to Chinatown or Fiesta Farms.

              I'm partial to K&K on Spadina's west side, just north of Dundas.
