Fresh Strawberries


Anyone know where I can get fresh strawberries in the Los Angeles area now in the winter?

I haven't seen them in the markets lately, but if you do see some, let me know which markets.

  1. You might try your local farmers market. A couple of weeks ago I saw some at the Torrance Farmers Market at Wilson Park.

      Pasadena's Farmers Market (Saturdays at PHS) has them. Not sure how good they are, though.

      1. they're at all the farmers markets. harry's berries took several weeks off, but they're back at it.

        1. I still see them at the farmer's market by the Central Library on Wednesday.

          1. I think I saw three or four vendors with strawberries at the Santa Monica (Sat) farmer's market. They're everywhere.

            1. Encino Farmers Market too. Have also seen them at the .99 Cent Only Stores a week ago.

              1. Studio City Farmer's Markets had them last Sunday morning, too.

                  Three vendors, too. Not the fragrant little bundles of sweetness you find in May, but still a hell of a lot better than you can get from the grocery store (even in May).

                  You can tell how out-of-season they are by the price... in season it's usually $5 or $6 for a three-pack (three overfilled pints), now it's $8 or $9, and next month and February it'll be $10 or more.

                2. Harry's Berries (from Oxnard) is usually at the Sunday Hollywood Farmers' Market with the best strawberries in L.A.
