I have found AMAZING strawberries at Bell's produce, who sells at the Moore Square Farmers Market on Wednesdays in downtown Raleigh.

Ya'll that are doing "pick your own" with your kids.... remember that strawberries are one of the Dirty Dozen..one of the twelve fruits and vegetables that has the highest levels of pesiticide/toxic chemicals. So, keep this in mind if you plan to allow your kids to eat while picking....look for an organic farm, or you need to think about not letting the kids eat them until they are washed.

I would call before going. I was at Page Road Farms yesterday and it was pretty much picked over and done for the season.

When we pick our own, we have to weigh our 3 year old before and after because he'll eat a quart of strawberries in the field.

At the farmer's market, he still gets to taste the berries they hand out. But we rarley buy them there.

Default I don't know their name...

but I went last week, sampled from a bunch of different stands, and found one in which my eyes just about rolled back in my head after tasting their strawberries.

If you're in the pavilion facing the seafood restaurant, turn left and head toward the end of the pavilion. This place is on the right, about 3/4 down the aisle.

That was big help, wasn't it? ;-)

Thumbs up Thank you!

Thanks for the tips everyone. I might skip the Pick Your Own route this year since I get the feeling I may have missed the boat. I am looking forward to my next trip the the Farmers Market.

Maybe I'll try one berry from each stand!

Thanks again for the help!

Blueberries are next on the U-pick calendar, NRG. I'm assuming there are lots of blueberry places as well as strawberry places.

You can always come up to MA and pick 'em. The season hasn't even started yet!
