When to Find Them

Fresh cranberries are available only in the autumn, typically in September, October and November.

Where to Find Them

Fresh cranberries can be found in the produce section of grocery stores. In most stores, fresh cranberries are sold prepackaged in plastic bags. Sometimes fresh cranberries can be purchased directly from the farms where they are grown.

How to Choose Them

Look for berries that are shiny, red, firm and round, with no soft spots. Cranberries with brown spots should be avoided.
