Strawberries for Farmers Market & Retail
Wondering if anyone here has experience growing strawberries to sell at the farmers market? We have a large patch of Everbearing strawberries for personal consumption but are considering putting another patch in for the farmers market.
I prefer Everbearing, as my harvest is spread out over the summer. Any thoughts on Everbearing vs June bearing for retail purposes? Perhaps a specific variety?
Our farmers market is Saturdays only. When in season, we have to pick berries every day. Will they keep ok if refrigerated through the week until Saturday for retail?
Also wondering about selling the runners/crowns in the spring. Not sure if this would be best done in bunches or to pot up?
