Best Selection of Fruit in Queens, US ONLY!

Where are all the blueberries, I ask? The strawberries, though early, look lousy from California, and have only seen US blueberries at Costco, $6 for a med container--not very sweet, too large. Everywhere else, including Trader Joe's, lots of stuff from Mexico.

I don't understand the whole invasion Mexico produce. I used to live in Mexico, and when you live there, you're told not to eat the produce and fruits, from non hotel sources, and if you do buy them from grocery store, to use tablets with them or spray to disinfect. And of course, everyone knows about the water.

But, why is all that produce sold here, with no warning to disinfect it properly? Most people just rinse their veggies in some cold water, and lots of people eat the peels to things. All this mexican produce that is suddenly shown up in our stores could account for the huge increase in food borne illnesses---------------Even whole foods sells the Mexican stuff...........

but I digress...................

where are the US blueberries? May is nearly over, and the prices for small containers are insane! Natural is crazy expensive on Austin St, in Forest Hills------------------please help!!
Any great fruit markets in Queens with NON MEXICO produce and Fruits???
