Growfood.org and Viva Farms are again bringing a strawberry mob to Capitol Hill. This year when you pick up your flat(s) of local strawberries, hang around Seven Hills Park for a community bbq Thursday night:
Thursday, July 7 · 5:00pm – 9:00pmSeven Hills Park16th & Howell St.Seattle, WA
Strawberries for sale in Seattle! Pre-order your fresh, local strawberries from Viva Farms. Grown in the rich, glacial soil of the Skagit Valley and packed with antioxidants. A flavor explosion! Seascape and Titan varieties are not your average supermarket berry, which are bred for transport over flavor. Half flats for $15 (that’s 6 pint baskets) and full flats for $28. Place your order at: https://sites.google.com/a /growfood.org/seattle-store/Order by Wed 7/6 at midnight. They will be available for pick up at the new Seven Hills Park at 16th and Howell on Capitol Hill from 5pm – 9pm.
We’ll have a community BBQ going, strawberry shortcake and bocce ball. Grab your berries and go, or bring something to grill and hang out.

I like to get a few flats, eat enough fresh to give me berry belly and then freeze the rest for smoothies all year. Others make strawberry jam, shortcake and lavish desserts. If you’re making jam, save a jar for our jam contest later in the summer!
Viva Farms is a project of GrowFood.org. It is a 33 acre farm in the Skagit Valley that incubates new farmers. Viva Farms makes a special effort to help Latino farm workers who are ready to make the jump to farm ownership. These berries are grown by Santiago Lozano (pictured) and Regino Flores.
