Anyone seen any huckleberry stands lately?

I need to get some fresh huckleberries. Anyone been to any stands lately where you've seen them?

I've been jonesin' for a fresh huckleberry shake, for some strange reason and when a girl needs a fresh huckleberry shake (Oregon huckleberry preferred), she needs a fresh huckleberry shake. The closer to Portland, the better, please. Thanks!

Ok, there's a place outside of Glacier National Park "Hungry Horse" Montana that is famous for it's shakes that leave you wanting more.

Road Trip?

Huckleberries are real fruits??

I though it was just a silly slack-jawed-local made up name for Huckleberry Finn.

I'm Irish - forgive my ignorance. I was well into my teens before I first saw a kiwi fruit...

I've been seeing huckleberries out on hiking trails for a couple of weeks now. Lots of work to get enough to do anything with.

Try the Hollywood Farmer's Market. The stall that sells wild mushrooms also had pints of huckleberries last Saturday. Bet they'll have them next week, too. You'd best hurry though!

My father in law tells me that when he used to go huckleberry picking he would put a sheet under the bush and then shake the berries off. If you've not ever seen a huckleberry bush they are low-growing, about 3 feet high, and the berries are itty-bitty. We were backpacking a couple of weeks ago and there were a few ripe berries we found on the trail, as well as wild blueberries (yum!) and wild strawberries (yummier!).

Ok, now I gotta get some huckleberries, too, and make a cheesecake and then top it off with huckleberry filling. Hollywood Market, here I come!
