If you will need fresh cranberries for holiday dishes -- I'm going to make the NYTimes cranberry cornbread tomorrow morning --
https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1022718-cranberry-cornbread?action=click&module=RecipeBox&pgType=recipebox-page&region=all&rank=0

With all the talk about supply difficulties, I would get them now and throw into the freezer.  Where to get?
FoodTown - none
Kim's Bros (now called 37 Lime Tree per the receipt) $2 for Ocean Spray 12oz
Mango Rico - $2.99 for the above
Former "Fruitadona" (don't know what they are called now), betw 83-84 - $3.99 for the above.  The price difference is amazing.

The local groceries haven't carried NoneSuch mincemeat, in jars or boxes, for a few years. Walmart has the best price but won't deliver at that price.  For its best combo of price + shipping I ordered from Smucker's directly and also got their Cross & Blackwell mincemeat for comparison and other sauces.   A decent price and modest flat rate shipping, arrived in one week and SO WELL PACKAGED so no glass breakage. 

Will combine mincemeat and fresh cranberries for Thanksgiving pie.

Fresh cranberries are $2.49 at Food Dynasty & Growing Farm.  Several weeks ago they were on sale at Food Dynasty 3 for $5.00.   Kim's has the lowest price.

i'm guessing prepared mincemeat might be found at Butcher Block in Sunnyside -- not super local, but not too long a haul.

 Did anyone make mincemeat pie? Can you buy it anywhere locally? Might try the Butcher Block.
