You know summer has arrived when the berry fields around Metro Vancouver open. You can take your kids out to the berry patches, teach them about how fruit ends up on our table, get them to help pick the berries (inevitably they will add both over and under ripe berries into your bucket) and have a blast out in the fresh air getting a bit dirty! Or you can pack a picnic, visit the farm market, and grab a basket of freshly picked berries. Some places offer both options, some are only pre-picked berries.
Not all farms sell the same type of berries. In fact many farms sell a wide variety of berries. Click on the name of each farm to learn about what berries you can find there.
Important: Public Health has stipulated that visitors may not bring their own containers to the fields for picking. Please make sure you plan on purchasing a container at the field for the berries you pick.
