Source for Premium Dried Fruit

Velda Mae | Nov 28, 201406:43 PM

I love Fastachi and live about 10 minutes from the Watertown store. However, I was dismayed to discover that in the span of 3 weeks, they shifted to a standard half-pound weight for their prepackaged dried fruits and raised the price of dried California apricots by $2 a pound, up to a cost of $17/lb. Also, items I bought in bulk a few weeks ago are now prepackaged in half-pound increments. It's my preference to buy smaller amounts and visit the store regularly. All of this got me wondering whether there's another local source for dried California apricots that can rival Fastachi in quality. If so, I'd love to know about it.
