Williamson Produce Strawberry Stand Manchester Av.

The green hillside hides
Little red berries for me
So bright and fragrant.

Driving in my car I spotted the big white sign declaring strawberries.  I had to stop.  I have a weakness for strawberries ripened on the vine. 

strawberry.stand.5603Walking to the stand I noticed the strawberry field in the back. 

strawberry.stand.5598I bought 2 baskets for $9. 

strawberry.stand.5599Pricey but I don’t think you will ever get fresher strawberries unless you pick them yourself.  They were rosy red and at the peak of their beauty.  I could not resist the sweet fruity scent for long.  I plopped one in my mouth and juices flew everywhere as I bit down.  Flesh was so tender and the flavor was so sweet.  These are the best strawberries I’ve ever had.  My only conundrum is why I need to drive by Manchester Ave. next weekend…

    We have been wanting to pick strawberries this season! Do they let you here? The price per basket seems high but I agree it’s worth it if the berries are ripe and sweet.

    What does 959’s (under company name) stand for in the price pic?

    No. The Carlsbad strawberry field is the only place I know where you can pick you own. I prefer the flavor of the Manchester Ave strawberries.

    959 is their size/quality code. They charge more for higher quality strawberries.
