I live in central Jersey and I've been searching for some of the fruits that were available to me when I lived in California.

Does anyone know where I can purchase lingonberries, black or red currants or gooseberries?

...and after watching a Scandinavian cooking show on PBS, I'm dying to try cloudberries...any ideas on where to purchase them?

Thank you

    If you were more specific in the title of your post (i.e. "Lingonberries, black or red currants or gooseberries in CNJ") you would likely get a better response.

      You could try Delicious Orchards in Colts Neck.

        I have seen Lingonberries at the Shoprite in Flemington, though I believe they only carry them when they are "in season". I seem to recall seeing gooseberries as well. You may also try the produce stand inside the Dutch Market in Flemington, they carry a wide variety of berries in season as well. (and it is located right next door to Shop Rite.)

          Did a quick google search and found the following site which will tell you NJ farms that are growing the berries you are seeking

          Gooseberries: http://njfb.org/cgi-bin/htmlos.cgi/00...

          I also was told that Kings Supermarkets carries both black and red currents (in season, call your local store for more info)

            Not fresh ones, obviously, but the 'market' in every Ikea store carries a lot of Scandinavian items...a friend who is Swedish stocks up there fairly regularly.

              I always find the best, in quality and price, seasonal fruit at large Asian supermarkets. Look for H-Mart or Hong Kong Supermarkets
