Strawberry season is a little later than usual, but the stands at the State Farmers' Market are bursting with berries.

The market off Lake Wheeler Road near its exit with Interstate 40 in Raleigh will celebrate the strawberry from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday, during Strawberry Day. 

The casual event features free samples of strawberry ice cream, a visit from Suzy the Strawberry, a dessert contest, free recipes and more. And, of course, lots of fresh, local strawberries for sale.

If you're looking to head to a farm and pick your own basket of strawberries, check our database of strawberry farms across the region.
