i'm planning and end-of-season fruit themed party for a large group and am wondering if you have any leads for fruit purveyors who carry rare and unusual fruit in nyc.

i intend to check out c-town, manhattan fruit exchange, and fairway/garden of eden/balducci's/amish/other gourmet stores for their selection.

i am hoping to have the most gorgeous spread of fresh and dried fruit (and some creative preparations) possible for this late date in the summer fruit season.

i am also planning a pretty party favor which involves gooseberries. i've been buying multi-colored ones, the really special dessert ones wrapped in paper skins, from varoius farmer's markets. are they still around?

thanks for your help -- i want this to be really special.
