Strawberry jam, strawberry pie, strawberry tart, strawberry muffins! You will have to think of all the berry recipes from Nanna's cookbook after your visit to The Farmer's Market Pick and your tribe bring home a bucket full.
The Farmer's Market pick is the latest strawberry U-Pick in the Yarra Valley and you will find it on the outskirts of Coldstream, by the yellow flags, just on the bend where the overtaking lane begins when heading towards Healesville. The set up is simple. You will be greeted by Linda at the farm gate shed where she will show you to the strawberry patch and the rows that have the best crop.
They are more than happy for you to taste as you go but be warned, you will find it hard to stop. The rich, red juicy fruit are delicious. The rows are nice and long - just perfect for the little ones to explore as they search for the biggest and ripest strawberry in the bunch!
Mamma's special mention: Coldstream is a gorgeous entrance to the Yarra Valley and once you have picked up your berries but need some more for lunch, Mamma highly recommends you keep on driving to Healesville and check out either Innocent Bystander OR The Harvest Hotel.
