strawberries and raspberries

Chevy Chase, MD(Zone 7a)

What are the best places to buy strawberry and raspberry plants? (Price is definitely a big factor for me.)

And what varieties are the best tasting for home use?

I'm hoping to plant this fall.

(I posted this originally on the Edible Fruit, but got no responses and thought some of you might know.)

Many thanks!

This place has a good selection and terrific prices, 100% rating in watchdog too. I think the taste of varieties is a matter of your taste as well as soil in your area.

Thanks! What varieties work well in your soil?

I've always done well with Ozark Beauty strawberries. I just planted raspberries for the first time this spring - Fallgold and Cumberland. They're doing well. I haven't planted any red raspberries.

They have some newer varieties at the link I sent you. Might want to ask what they recommend in your area.
