Grab the family and head out to a local U-pick farm for fresh produce

The strawberries came on strong and fast.

In mid-May, Biringer Farm in Arlington put out the call: Come and get ‘em.

Most farmers around Snohomish County are predicting that berries, vegetables, tree fruits and other crops will be early this summer, so it’s time to offer up a list of farmstands, community-supported-agriculture (CSA) suppliers and U-pick locations.

Farmers markets are also open all around the county. Find a list at heraldnet.com/farmersmarkets.

Before you go, it’s a good idea to check the farm’s website or Facebook page to see what’s ripe and to ensure they’re open.

If your stand, CSA or self-pick place isn’t on the list, please let us know. We will add it to the list online. Email gfiege@heraldnet.com.
