Oui, les fraises sont arrivées!

Most of the berries at the Jean-Talon market were too large, but I found some tiny sweet ones (think it was chez Trottier; in any event at the last aisle to the west, at the south). Yum.

    For the many non-French speakers out there, Ms. Gatta's first sentence is an announcement that the local strawberry season has begun.

      Yee-haw! I was wondering when they'd be ready. Got an amazing case of organic strawbs from the market last year and can't wait to do the same again.

          oops forgot to mention $ - pay for what you pick at $8 for a 4L box.

            I haven't tried them, but my friend ordered 15 crates of organic strawberries (20$ a crate - that seems like an exceptionally good deal, she may have gotten a quantity discount) from the following:
