The Market at DelVal is the perfect place to go if you are looking for a fun, inexpensive and healthy way to spend quality time with your family this spring. Ripened strawberries will be available to be picked beginning mid-May.
Strawberries are notorious for being the “first fruit” of the season. Strawberries are admired as the “superstar fruit” because of their superb anti-oxidant power. One cup of strawberries gives you a whopping 140% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C and can reduce the risk of cancer and heart attacks. Strawberries are also low fat, low calorie, high in fiber, folic acid and potassium.
Pick your own peaches, apples and pumpkins, are also seasonally available. Strawberries will be available to the public for picking Monday through Saturday from 8:00am to 6:00pm, and Sunday from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Strawberries will be weighed and priced by the pound.
