That is like $40 worth of grocery store strawberries.
It’s 12 pints of strawberries, which is 9lbs or 9 of those Driscoll’s boxes, so you’re basically spot on. As an East Coast person it makes me giddy as fuck, but also makes me feel a little bit like I’m stealing them.
Where’d you get them?
There’s a little market within walking distance of our place here called Oakmont Produce Market! They sell specialty import goods and really awesome fresh fruit at insane prices. Today I bought Ribena, a quart of local wildflower honey, a quart of blueberries, 2 champagne mangoes, limes, a cantaloupe, and that crazy pallet of strawberries for $30. And it’s all freaking amazing-tasting. I’m in love.
