Spring is here! That means that you can get fresh, delicious fruits and vegetables from the State Farmers Market. It also means that you can get some things even fresher by going to the farm and picking them yourself. Strawberry picking is a great activity for families to do together when the weather is good.
Before you go to any of these farms, call or email to make sure the farm is open. The opening times can change depending on the weather and when the fruit is ripe (ready to be eaten). Click on the name of a farm to get more information.
