Best fresh fruit (strawberries) in DC?

bgn Mar 9, 2007 05:12 AM

Hello all,
I need to pick up 4 pounds of strawberries for a dinner tonight, and wanted to see if anyone has a recommendation for fresh fruit this time of year in DC or bethesda/chevy chase if possible. The closest place to me is the Columbia Heights Giant, but I think I can do better than that. Thanks!

      I got very good strawberries there a few days ago for my girlfriend. Can't remember what the price was on it.

        Last time I got great strawberries, a few weeks ago, was at Union Market off florida ave. $1.25/lb.

      Snider's in Silver Spring has nice FL strawberries at $1.98/LB.

        Grocery store is a fine bet. I got excellent strawberries at the 8th and P st NW Safeway the other day. $2 a pound, too.
