Anyone up for strawberry picking in Montreal? Considering we all love agood basket of strawberries, why not get your hands on some delish berries this summer for a refreshing start to the season?
While we can get a little unlucky at the grocery store or market. So instead of inspecting every basket of strawberries (like we all do) why not pick your own!
Near the greater Montreal areas, there are multiple farms that offer strawberry picking! So, why not grab your S/O, bestie, or heck, even go solo if you're that much of a strawberry lover and start pickin' away.
