Wanted: Arkansas blackberries

WANTED: Arkansas blackberries like these, the Navajo variety.
  • WANTED: Arkansas blackberries like these, the Navajo variety.
I bought a quart of Arkansas blackberries at the Hillcrest Farmers Market last Saturday. Maybe the sweetest blackberries ever. I remembered fondly, though, some blackberries I'd bought on the roadside one July 4 north of Conway on a return trip from a Buffalo River float. The blackberry cobbler I made that night WAS the best cobbler in history.

So I wanted to make blackberry cobbler this weekend. I went to my normal supplier of Arkansas produce this morning. He informed me the local blackberry season was over. They'd have no more. The extension service website indicates the season should last a bit longer for some varieties.

?!?

Anybody know of any local berries within reach for cooking tomorrow? Or better yet. Will a supplier be back at Pulaski Heights Baptist tomorrow?

UPDATE: My deep dish pie runneth over with suggestions here and elsewhere. Thanks. Looks like I'll have cobbler after all.
