Looking for strawberries in SW Michigan
We're heading to Chicago this weekend for a niece's HS graduation and I'd like to get some strawberries from a guy by the side of the road selling them from his pickup, or a farmstand.
I need someplace not far off of I-94 (mother in law is riding with us, so no long detours, please). Any SW Michigan Hounds have a suggestion?

Just in case you don't get an answer in time, here's another possibility. You can go to one of the farmers markets in the Chicago area, many of which are on Saturday mornings, and where many of the farmers are from Southwest Michigan. There's a comprehensive listing in the Tribune, with city markets organized by day of the week and suburban markets organized by town: www.chicagoweathercenter.com/search/c... The most well-known are Green City Market in Chicago and the Evanston Farmers Market, both of which are on Saturdays.
