After receiving the quest, you can find Linus’ blackberry basket in the Backwoods. This is an area of the map directly to the left of the Bus Stop.

When standing by the bus, head to the left, and you will enter into a small area with the bus tunnel and a few bushes. The blackberry basket will be on the north side of the road and is very easy to spot.

The area is fairly close to your farm, and can even be seen while taking the path above your farm to Robin’s house.
