Cherry Season 2014 - Prices seen in the SF Bay Area?

I bought some cherries at Costco 2lbs for $12, paid too much on Fri, noticed at 99 Ranch Fremont they had Bing cherries for $2.99/lb today 5/12/14.
Hope others will post prices they see around the SF Bay Area.
Manila Oriental in Daly City (King Plaza) has cherries for $1.99/lb. Not the same grade of Costco, of course.
$2 to $2.50/lb on Stockton Street in SF Chinatown on Saturday . . . still too pale in color and flavor for me to be a buyer.
Baskets (pint sized?) at UN Plaza for around $5. Mostly Brooks, some early Bings. I bought around 25-30 cherries for $3 from the Indian vendor near the center of the market - maybe they were $4/lb?
Local farmer's market has cherries at $5-6/lb, first saw them a couple of Sundays ago. Hopefully prices drop as more vendors bring them in.
