Bare root strawberry plants available now!

It’s that time of the year where you can spot workers and sprinklers on every field in Plant City. You know it’s October because every field you go by has been neatly prepared into symmetrical, never ending rows of black plastic. As the weeks go by, the rows get dotted with green and the sprinkles not only provide water, but hundreds of mini rainbows throughout the fields.

Every year, Bobby brings us bare root plants to sell at the market. Just like last year, we are growing Radiance berries. These berries, if you remember, were larger and sweet as ever.  If you are looking to grow your own strawberries this season, stop by the market today and pick some up. They are sold in bunches of 25 and yes, we add instructions for you on how to plant them. 😉 Just make sure you come by soon because they are only available for a short amount of time!

New Roof Market Construction

Now that our summer vacation is over, it was time to drop a note. A little time off it’s always good for the soul, right? While we were away, there was a lot going on at the market.

Drumroll please….

Tada! Here it is…the market is getting a new roof!


Yes, that’s right! After so many years, the market is getting a new roof. Can’t wait to show you all!

In the mean time, we are still open Tuesday to Sunday from 9 am to 6 pm. Come on by and find the freshest veggies and fruits in town. Plus, get yourself a milkshake to beat the Florida heat. :)

Join the Party – Fl Strawberry Festival

Yes, you still have time to Join the Party at the Florida Strawberry Festival this weekend! This year, the Florida Strawberry Festival is celebrating it’s 80th Anniversary. In this age of “throw away” cellphones, its nice to know some traditions still exist.

Happy 80th Birthday to the Florida Strawberry Festival!

Happy 80th Birthday to the Florida Strawberry Festival!

Our first stop when going to the Strawberry Festival is to see the Parkesdale Farms booth. It’s always so beautifully done and this year was no exception. This beautiful 3-tier cake adorned with 80 candles was the centerpiece of the booth. And we can’t forget the strawberry throne!


After saying our goodbyes, we always head to the midway. But before going on any rides, we make a stop at the Gyro vendor right outside the Arthur Boring building. Two gyros, please, light on the sauce.


This year, the girls are fearless! They are now big fans of the Zipper and wanted to ride even crazier ones. Me? I’ll stick with the Ferris Wheel.



After riding a few rides, it was time for dessert. You CAN’T miss the Amish donuts. They have two stands at the Festival. The one on the west side only offers their donuts. The one on the east side has donuts and pretzels. Just be ready to hold a gigantic hot donut on your hand. As you can see, we shared ours.

Don't miss the Amish donuts at the Florida Strawberry Festival.
