Berry good

Season pickings: strawberries, raspberries and more from a Kent patch

Customers carried out freshly picked strawberries from the Al Duris Strawberry Farm on Saturday.

The u-pick farm sells fresh berries and other produce daily at its Kent stand that sits in a 20-acre strawberry field on Frager Road South, just west of 68th Avenue South (West Valley Highway).

The stand is a seasonal satellite of the Puyallup-based family farm operation.

Business has been good, growers said. The stand, which is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., will soon close with the end of the strawberry season.
