Gooseberries & Currants

Fresh in the produce department, we have local gooseberries and 4 varieties of local currants – white, pink, red and black. They’re both from Natura Farms in Marine on St. Croix, located just 14 miles north of River Market.

Currants are quite common in French cooking. Fresh currants can be used like blueberries, and somewhat like blackberries or raspberries, in tarts and pies and other desserts while gooseberries are good for making jams and relishes.
