Local Oregon Strawberries: Found

Awesome! I bought my first batch of local strawberries yesterday. I saw a truck set up on River Rd in Keizer, between Arby's (yes, the one with free things on Wednesdays!) and the little nursery. I got there at about 5 PM. I was only going to buy 3 pints, but he offered me a deal, what with it being the end of the day and all. I ended up getting a half flat for $9. I'm pretty sure that's a good deal, but I haven't looked around much yet. He was selling the half flat (or six pints) for $11 regularly. He gets the berries from Nanneman's Farms and sells all through the berry seasons.

I started eating them when I got in the car, dirt and all. I just couldn't resist the freshly picked smell of them! Delicious.

That's where we usually buy our berries - Nanneman's. They have a nice stand out Hazel Green(?). When you were talking about them the other night I almost mentioned them, but don't know how their prices compare with everyone else. I've just come to appreciate their variety and quality.
I'll bet the smell was irresistible in your car!

Now I gotta to out and get some, because my back yard isn't producing enough. Yet. =)

yes $9 for a half a flat is a pretty good deal.
