Are there fresh raw frozen blueberries floating around that I don't know about? In CA all the blueberries/rasberries/strawberries cost $5 if you even blink at them. I caved and bought strawberries today which I was really happy about, but that price tag is so high for so little.

My organic food coop sells frozen fruits, and they deliver to various locations in CA. The prices I get are wholesale because we buy as a group in my town. I don't know if that's how all group deliveries are, but here are my prices for frozen organic fruits:
blueberries, 5#, 17.95 (3.59/lb)
peach slices, 5#, 13.05 (2.61/lb)
raspberries, 5#, 15.55 (3.11/lb)
strawberries, 5#, 14.45 (2.89/lb)
blackberries, 10 oz., 3.24 (5.18/lb)
The way we order, through a local store as a group, we get free delivery on a truck with a freezer section, so everything frozen stays frozen, and we all wait for the call the day the delivery comes in, and bring our coolers so that nothing thaws before we get it home. It works great, and I've always been totally happy with this company They have TONS of products - not all raw, but plenty of raw seeds and nuts, and wilderness family coconut oil, the fruits, etc. Stuff other than food items too - books, health & beauty, even some farm stuff!
They're called Azure Standard and they're on the web (with retail prices). You can check on the website - I think they have their delivery routes posted there, and maybe even drop points. You can always email or call them and get a drop point contact near you, to set up your orders and deliveries.
Anyway, thought I'd throw this out there. I don't know if this is cheaper than bulk frozen organic fruits from Costco, but for me it's a lot more convenient and I feel better about it, since it's a family-owned business (good friends of ours know the family, and a few of our f riends work there, too).
Oh, they also deliver in 11 states total - mostly western, but also along I-80 to the midwest, I think. Check the website - I'm sure they detail it there.
