Best Places to Pick Your Own Strawberries in Indianapolis

Best Places to Pick Your Own Strawberries in Indianapolis

There’s nothing like the sweet taste of a sun-ripe strawberry picked straight from the plant. Strawberry picking in Indianapolis is a popular tradition for many local families. The little ones tend to eat their weight in berries as they move down the rows. The car will smell sweet on the drive home from the boxes of berries and the juice that stains tiny hands and faces.

As with all activities and events on Indy with Kids, we recommend that you call ahead to confirm that there are self picking times available. Strawberry picking season generally is about three weeks in length. We also recommend that you bring cash to pay for your berries, some places are not equipped to take credit card. Wear sunblock and sunglasses, there is no shade in berry picking!
