Swanton Strawberries down to $3/basket
Swanton strawberries were down to $3/basket this week at the Berkeley market, or $5 for two, a great deal considering that recently they were $4/basket. Today's market is almost over, but they'll be at the Tuesday market on Derby.
They're delicious as always, of course.
At the Grand Lake market last Saturday, Swanton berries were $2 a basket! (Sadly, they were nowhere in sight at today's market. Anyone know why they show up inconsistently?)
Interestingly, Saturday, I purchased a basket at the market, excited about the 3$ price tag. Then I went to Whole Foods market to pick up some chicken for dinner. There, I found strawberries for 2$ a basket...a big time sale.
Where did these strawberries come from...Swanton berry farm.
Anyone care to explain that?
