HI guys, I am new to the forum, and i have some questions.
First of all I am tired of paying $4-5 dollars for berries such as: blueberries/blackberries/raspberries, that come in a small plastic container with fungus growing on it, and tasting extremely bland.
I am sure you guys know that purchasing fruit from your grocery store versus eating fruit fresh off the farm is a difference between night and day. Since I live in the chicago land area, does anyone know where I can purchase farm fresh fruit in the chicago markets? I tried the whole organic food store right next to me, but those just taste slightly better than the traditional grocery store berries. THey still dont have that authentic fresh aroma smell and flavor.
I usually go to a place called JAMBA JUICE, and i am so addicted to that place! One of my favorite drinks has blueberries in it. THey say that they freeze dry it right after picking to lock in the freshness. I went to online websites to see if i could purchase berries that have been freeze dried. I did purchase them, but the price is so ridiculously high! I had to pay 60 dollars just to get 5 pounds of blueberries, and the taste was still not close to Jamba Juice's berries.
I was wondering does anyone know how i can purchase farm fresh berries in the chicago land area? or anyother way for a lot cheaper price? Thanks you guys. I appreicate your help!
