Napa strawberry stands open
I look forward to it for months. Both the stand on Silverado just north of Trancas, and the stand on Kelly Road (I guess it's North Kelly) near 29, are open. I bought a couple baskets today on Silverado Trail - medium size and sweet, a bit crunchy, delicious. She also has onions and fava beans. Happy spring!
Oh, I'm happy to know this! I look forward to this every year. I love the way the car smells
after picking up a half-flat.
During a hike in Napa on Sat 3/29/08 a local mentioned the Strawberry Stand we just drove by. I love strawberries so we had to stop.
They looked really good and the sample we had was nice & sweet. Of course the Half Flat I got wasn't as sweet as the one I tried, but just add honey to them or just eat them as is.
$17.50 a flat
$9.50 half flat (6 baskets)
$5.50 a 1/4 flat
$2 a basket
$7.50 a 4 basket
Location: It's on the Silverado Trail close to Trancas.

I have mixed feelings about the little stand on Silverado, which I drive past three or four times a week...last summer I saw them unloading flats of strawberries from a truck into the back of the stand and spotted the flats from a Watsonville grower. And they've sold berries when none can be seen growing in the field in the back. When I asked about it, I got a non-commital reply. What they sell, I must say, is as good or better than anything I can find in the local markets.
