Weekend Happenings: It's Strawberry Season, St. Louis!

Man oh man, Mother Nature is full steam ahead!

Thies Farm and Eckert's just announced that pick-your-own-strawberries is officially underway almost a month earlier than last year!   At Thies Maryland Heights location, pick-your-own is $1.50 per pound, while already-picked strawberries will be available for $2.50 per pint.  At Eckert's -Belleville, pick-your-own is $2.50/pound this year.

While I love both Eckert's and Thies Farm equally and visit BOTH regularly... Thies Farm is only 5 minutes from my office so super convenient.  If you have never been strawberry picking, the fruit straight off the vine is simply amazing.  It is a fun family adventure and delivers the best strawberries that you will ever taste, as they have never been refrigerated. 

Here is a teeny peek at our strawberry-picking adventure last year:
