Celebrate the strawberry at the State Farmers' Market's annual Strawberry Day this week.

It's 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday, at the market on Lake Wheeler Road, just off Interstate 40 at exit 297. The free event includes samples of strawberry ice cream, a visit with Suzy the Strawberry mascot, a dessert contest, recipes to take home and lots of juicy strawberries to purchase.

This can be a fun event, especially, for little ones.
