Strawberries are starting to show up at local farm stands on the North Fork. Krupski’s in Peconic has them. So does Latham’s. Their main farm stand is in Orient; there’s a daily satellite stand in Greenport as well. Pretty soon, Harbes in Mattituck on the North Road will be putting out its berries too.
My vote for best berries is Harbes with Latham’s a close second. And if you want to make a cobbler or shortcake, now’s the time.
