How To Find Saskatoons in Grocery Stores in Northern Michigan

POSTED IN For Consumers, For Growers, For Members ON 7/16/2014

While we await photo contest entries (See “Announcing The Great Saskatoon Search Contest!”),  we can share some photos of what saskatoon berry displays look like in a couple of local grocery stores.

IMG_0205At Olseon’s Plaza West (Traverse City, MI) the saskatoons are in the produce department wall cooler, next to the raspberries, and above the strawberries.

While the supply is low today in this store, Oleson’s staff report that they are expecting another shipment tomorrow morning.

Across town, the look is a bit different.

At Tom’s East Bay (Traverse City, MI) you will find the saskatoons on a stand next to the cherries and apricots.

Tom’s also provides some information about saskatoons, which was prepared by Cherry Capital Foods.

This is not a complete directory of stores carrying saskatoon berries. Rather, these are examples, reflecting photos that we have seen so far. As always, if you do not see saskatoons, ask store staff members.

If you find saskatoons elsewhere, and you have your smart phone or camera with you, snap a picture to post on this blog, and you may find yourself the satisfied winner of a jar of awesome saskatoon jam!

 

  • Bought berries at both Hoxsie’s and at Evergreen Market in Williamsburg, and some jAm from Wee Bee Jammin’. Baked a pie and froze the rest. Picked up a couple extra pints from Hillers in West Bloomfield to eat fresh.
