Desperately seeking wild strawberries, to buy or pick
Evidently, information about where to buy -- or preferably where to pick -- wild strawberries is the single category of information not indexed by Google. Im looking for legit wild strawberries: tiny, red, explosive with flavor...
I'd love to find a known place to pick them myself, or even instructions for how to locate and identify a place.
100% willing to go beyond New York into CT or NJ or even PA. I'm simply dying for these little guys!!
I hear that sometimes Whole Foods or the greenmarkets will carry them, but I'd love a little weekend berry picking adventure if possible (posting this in Manhattan because I live here, and ideally would like to find something fairly local and more or less accessible, perhaps with a Zipcar if need be).
If anybody can help point me in the right direction that would be amazing. Thanks hounds!
The farmer's markets are the obvious best place to get them in Manhattan. Fairway had upstate berries last summer that were gorgeous, small and sweet.
This is the best source for Pick your own farms http://www.pickyourown.org/NY.htm. and http://www.pickyourown.org/NJ.htm
Can’t wait until they come in to season.
