Strites' Orchard Farm Market and Bakery

Strites' Orchard Farm Market & Bakery
This past weekend we went on a family fun activity and visited Strites' Orchard Farm Market and Bakery in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. We have been there many times and I love buying my fresh produce from Strites'. You can find them on 1000 Strites Road in Harrisburg...very easy to find and get to from most local locations.

This past Saturday Strites had a "pick your own" blueberries deal going on, so the entire family piled into the car and headed to the orchard. Once there...we found the blueberry section of the orchard and got busy picking several quarts of blueberries. We had a great time!
Shopping for delicious fresh produce
After we were done picking our blueberries we headed inside the farm market to do some additional shopping. I was able to purchase peaches, cucumbers, nectarines, strawberries, potatoes, onions, green peppers, cabbage and a few other things. The quality you get at Strites' is a whole lot better than what any of our local grocery stores carry, but be forewarned...the produce here does cost a little bit more. (worth it in my opinion).

Strites' Orchard Farm Market and Bakery often has "pick your own" days which makes for a great family-friendly activity to do with the kids. Our grand daughter, age four...loves going to Strites' with us and last year she really enjoyed picking her own pumpkins on pick-your-own pumpkin day.

Strites' Orchards
You can visit Strites' Orchards web site to see what future events they may have. In addition, they update their web site often with what fresh produce is in-season & available for purchase. If you are looking for some delicious homemade baked goods (breads, pies, whoopie pies, cupcakes and more), they also sell those in their bakery department. Hint - Those chocolate whoopie pies w/peanut butter filling are super delicious!!!

In addition, you will find in their refrigerated section white milk, chocolate milk and some local meat products too. With that said, I have never purchased their dairy products or meat products because they are too expensive for my budget. (around $5.00 for a half-gallon of milk). All of the meat & dairy products are sourced locally to the Harrisburg area.

The next time you want some delicious fresh produce or looking for a family-friendly activity...head on out to Strites' Orchard Farm Market and Bakery. We think you will have a great time!
