Quite a number of the chain grocery stores around here (North Carolina)
sell Dickinson's Marion Blackberry Preserves.  Oddly enough, some of the
"super" Walmarts carry it, which I thought very odd.  I became quite
"addicted" to marionberries while out in Oregon, and this preserve is
actually quite good.  The Dickinson web page is at
