article imageStrawberry season finally arrives in Southern Ontario

By Stephanie Dearing     Jul 5, 2009 in Food
After a delay caused by unseasonably cool and wet weather, Ontario's strawberries are finally ripe and available to eat.
After a few scary frosts and a heck of a lot of unseasonably cool weather, Ontario's strawberries are coming on strong - and this year's crop, for some regions of Ontario, is looking to be a good one, as long as the coolish weather holds on. Which is not what Ontario's consumers want to hear.
The cool wet spring that blanketed most of Southern Ontario has slowed down most crops affected by the weather, not just the strawberries. Consumers can expect that their favourite food products will not be available at the normal time. Maybe it is the delay in the availability of anticipated fresh fruits and vegetables, but when locally-produced foods are finally on the market, they are reportedly selling out quickly.
Consumers, be warned - do your shopping in the mornings!
