GRAND FALLS-WINDSOR, NL—The first year for a strawberry U-pick has turned out to be a success for Marks Market.

"We had a bumper crop and everyone seemed to be pleased," said Chris Oram of Marks Market.

”We’re getting on the tail end of the season now, but if the strawberries are like this every year we’ll be very pleased.”

With just about a week left to the 2017 season they are already gearing up for the 2018 season.

This year’s U-pick featured an acre and a half of strawberry fields. They have added an extra acre to next year’s crop.
