When looking for the first signs of spring, some folks point to early flowers — blooming peach and cherry trees, daffodils, hyacinths and the lot. For me? The first fresh-picked, perfectly ripe Alabama strawberries mark the transition from dreary winter to the bounty of spring and summer.

From south to north, strawberry plants are now in full flower, some producing their first fruits of the season. Starting in late March, U-pick farms will open to the public. Some seasonal farmers markets also crank up because it’s strawberry season. Desserts featuring crimson berries from Cullman County farmer Trent Boyd and others will start appearing on restaurant menus by April.

Strawberry-themed fairs and festivals pick up when the season is at its peak, starting with the Baldwin County Strawberry Festival in Loxley on Saturday, April 13. At markets, Alabama strawberries should be available into June.
