Maryland Strawberry Picking Season is here! It's a wonderful activity for kids of all ages... and you get to taste the fruit of your labor. The strawberry picking season is usually May to early June but this year we've had some April farms.

Below are the updates as of May 3, 2023. I included the farm info and a Google Map at the end show which one is near you. (And if you are looking for strawberry picking in Virginia, check out my post with 8 more farms!)
