  1. I am writing to see if you can tell me where in the Rochester, NY area (actually Canandaigua) where I can get either canned or frozen boysenberries. They are one of my very favorite fruits and are not carried in our area. Thank you for your help. Linda

    • Hi Linda,
      Wegman’s has a good selection of Oregon Fruit but sadly not boysenberries. I think your only option is Amazon.com. They carry everything we make and the price is good too. Thanks for asking!
