Farmer's market strawberries/cherries - my sour tale

jrabbit2727 | Jul 2, 2009 09:50 AM

Went to the farmer's market yesterday all excited to buy fresh local strawberries and cherries. The perfect taste of summer.....or so I thought.

Despite sampling fruit from several vendors, I left empy handed as all the strawberries and cherries were mealy and sour. Or at best had no sweetness to them at all.

I asked the farmers if things would get better later in the season, but they weren't very promising saying that growing conditions had not been idea...not hot enough or enough sun.

Has anyone had good local fruit this year...and if so..where did you get it?

I'm really not interested in buying imported fruit.....but I'm not sure I have an option this summer!
