Blackcurrants in Vancouver or West Kootenays

Looking to buy a flat (20 lbs. or more) of blackcurrants when in season. Either near Nelson/Castlegar/Slocan Valley or as close to where the Fraser River meets the Ocean as possible (inlaws can bring them here when they visit). Could be 20 lbs. frozen too.

No-one in the Kootenays grows these for sale, as far as I can tell after living here 2 years. I'd love to make blackcurrant syrup, jam, and whatever have you...I grew up on Ribena and miss the flavour.

I found a grower in the Fraser Valley but they just sell commercially and are not interested in selling 20 lbs.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
