Fresh peaches???

I know they aren't in season, but does anyone know where I might be able to find some fresh peaches in the greater DSM area?  My Mom REALLY wants to make a peach pie for Thanksgiving, but says she hasn't seen peaches anywhere.  She won't use canned and she won't just buy the pie.  Any ideas ladies?

Have you tried calling around to the local grocery stores and see if they have any?  I haven't seen any but here's a bump for ya!

Thanks!  I haven't done any calling around yet, but I'm also 2.5 hours away.  I would just go look around myself anyway, but it's 45 min to the nearest grocery store from where I live. 

Hopefully someone on here will know and save me some of the extra work.  Otherwise, I think you're right.  I'll just have to start calling stores that are local to her.

Do you have a whole foods around your area (not sure if there are any in DSM)?  They tend to sometimes have fruits and veggies which are sometimes out of season...or unique.

I know there is one in Omaha...not sure about DSM.  I'll check it out.  Thanks for the great idea!

I think there is a new Trader Joes in the West Des Moines area, would they have them?

 I would check a health food store. I remember being pregnant during the winter and craving peaches. I couldn't find them anywhere! So good luck! :)
