Strawberry Season!

Nothing is better than a fresh, juicy, sweet local strawberry. Find them at Fresh Quality Produce, Mandair Farms & Sole Foods Street Farm. Jams, pies and ice cream are classic recipe ideas, but maybe try something more imaginative like this Strawberry Walnut Salsa from thefeedfeed.com – pickup some fresh mint and dill at the market along with your berries this Wednesday and whip up this fresh salsa.
