Where in Chicago can I buy black or red currants?

My girlfriend picked up a taste for them when she was in England, and I'd love to find some for her that isn't Absolute Currant. I bought some Zante currants before I realized they were actually raisins and not currants, so while they taste fine, they're not the same. Even a farmers market or some such that regularly stocks them would be appreciated too. I have already checked the whole foods around me, so no luck there.
Bonus points: a decent recipe for turning some into syrup as well.
