It's not a huge case of strawberries, but it's still good eats!
Farmer's Markets and local farms are a great source of getting vegetables cheap. Some farms also have pick-your-own vegetables lots which makes them even less! I wish there were more of them in my area. We'd definitely go more often to help gain an appreciation of where our food comes from. It's also a great activity for tiring out kids. Lol
As far as I know, the closest farm to me is Froberg's Farm in Alvin, TX. For a few months a year they have u-pick strawberries. Since it's about 45 minutes away from me and gas is outrageous, we head there once in a while. I lucked out today because we happened to be in the area and I begged my husband to stop on our way home. They had some different "imperfect" baskets to choose from for only $1/basket! Woo hoo! Totally jumped on it. They weren't tiny baskets either. I got 8 tomatoes, 10 cucumbers, and 11 green peppers. The broccoli was about $1.50/lb, the cauliflower was $1.50/head, the mango was $0.50 each. I also got 3-20oz sodas at $1.35 each because it was 95f out not including the Texas heat index. Paid $11 even for all of this!
Anyone know of any other u-pick ms just general farms near Galveston? I'd love to support some local businesses while getting the freshest produce available.
