Freshest fruit and seasonal produce

Admire the changing seasonal palette of The Avenue. Snap up summertime strawberries, autumnal pumpkins and other seasonal produce grown in nearby orchards, market gardens, market stalls, and roadside vendors.

Get into the fields yourself and experience the joys of "picking your own" strawberries, stone fruits, and berries. Celebrate the start of the November picking season at the Strawberries and Cherries Festival, move onto apples and pears and mark the season's impending closure with the March Harvest Festival.
