Posted May 10

Strawberries

If you have a little one at home or big kids on track out, here's something to do this week: The State Farmers' Market celebrates the strawberry during Strawberry Day, which is 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday.

The event includes free samples of strawberry ice cream; visits with Suzy the Strawberry; a dessert contest; free recipes; and lots of fresh, local strawberries for purchase.

The market is off of Interstate 40 at Exit 297, Lake Wheeler Road in Raleigh.

If strawberry picking is more your style, our strawberry database lists dozens of pick-your-own farms.
