Fresh summer strawberries are a popular treat in CNY, and they taste even better when you pick them!

Strawberries are good for you as they're high in antioxidants and help lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Fruits give you healthy skin and hair and you'll feel more energetic after eating a few.

Strawberry season is here so go out and pick some sweet goodness in Central New York! Here are the best spots for U-Pick strawberries. Most locations are opening the U-Pick area this weekend, but you can always call ahead to confirm.
