Red and red and red all over

I’m looking at my calendar and planning my annual strawberry jam making festival with fellow Canning Queen, Linda. Because the flood of North Carolina strawberries is beginning. I purchased some early ones last week at the State Farmers Market in Raleigh. Usually the first berries are a little disappointing, but these first-run sweeties were excellent. Bodes well for future jam.

The Western Wake Farmers Market in Cary will hold a Strawberry Festival on Saturday during the usual market hours, 8 a.m. to noon. There will be strawberry dishes to taste and face painting for the kids. Find out more here.

You could make a strawberry day of it by also hitting the Cleveland Strawberry Festival in Johnston County on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s on Technology Drive in Cleveland.

The State Farmers Market’s Strawberry Day will be May 5, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. More on that is here.
