[Paris] Strawberry Picking

One more thing to love about Paris – the proximity of lush farmlands from which you can harvest the freshest produce of the season. Even those who can’t imagine shoveling potatoes out of mother earth would surely agree with me that strawberry picking (especially in weather like this) is absolutely perfect for a weekend morning. Try Les Fermes de Gally, currently open from 9am to 7pm everyday, to experience a bit of farm life fun.

Once you have arrived, get yourself a little pushcart (free to use) and some containers (€0.35/wooden container, €0.10/plastic container, €0.05/plastic bag). To save money and be eco-friendly, bring your own containers.

Then, find your strawberries (or any other fruit or vegetables you fancy) by following the signs.

Now, start picking!

Some fruits and vegetables currently available for harvest include cherries, red currants, rhubarb, carrots, onions, potatoes, cucumbers, green beans, radishes…see the full listing here. Other than strawberries, we also brought home some zucchinis and aubergines for dinner. It really doesn’t get much fresher than this.

At the check-out, where each of your produce will be weighed, don’t forget to buy a bottle or two of the farm’s 100% apple juice. C’est très très bon.
