Valentine's Day Strawberry Displays — Updated

Editor's Note: Send us photos of your Valentine's Day strawberry displays, and we'll add them to our slideshow.


In the spirit of Valentine's Day, we checked out some stores to see how they were bringing strawberries into the holiday celebration.

I visited several stores locally, and The Packer's Northeast editor Amy Sowder checked out some supermarkets while on the road in Virginia.

Weather in California has not been favorable for big strawberry volumes for the holiday, with lots of rain causing supply to be very tight. More fruit has been available from Florid and Mexico. 

However, while the California rain is a bit of a short-term hassle, it sets up for a great crop in March and April, suppliers said late last week. 

If you can't get enough of strawberries and Valentine's Day, check out the latest episode of Millennials Eat.
