May is the start of strawberry season here in Indiana. The best strawberries are from local patches because they are fresh off the vine. In Indiana, there are strawberry patches all over the state. Some even have "u-pick" patches, where you come and pick your own. These are more budget friendly than just buying from the farmer's stand because you have to do a little work for them!
- Noblesville, IN: Spencer Farm
- Hagerstown, IN (east of Indy): Bell's Strawberry Farm
- Greenwood/South Indy, IN: Waterman's Family Farm
Once you have your strawberries, meal plan them in for breakfast, lunch, dinner and/or snack to help you get your 2 full cups of fruit in each day.
