Has anyone seen gooseberries, red and white currants or other less popular fruits in farmers markets or stores yet this year? Bonus points for cloudberries!

  1. I've never seen cloudberries in this area; I always assumed it was too hot for them.

    At the Reston Farmers Market, one of the vendors (Reid's Orchard) has currants and gooseberries every year. However, as of last week, they weren't yet in season. They sell at a few markets in the area:

    Here is there list of what they grow and the season:

    1. I saw gooseberries and both currants at the Crystal City farmer's market yesterday, from Kuhn Orchards. They appear at many other markets in the area too:
