Strawberry pie, fresh churned strawberry ice cream, strawberry poppyseed salad, strawberry trifle, strawberry shortcake with fluffy whipped cream, fresh strawberries off the vine, strawberries with balsamic glaze…At the risk of sounding like Bubba Gump, we can’t help but get excited about strawberries in Sandbridge. After all, our neighboring Pungo is home to the Strawberry festival and many local strawberry farms, which means if you’re in town from late-April til mid-June, you’ll want to stop by a local farm or farm stand and get your hands on some fresh-picked strawberries!
A few of our favorite local spots include Cullipher Farm Market, Flanagan Farm, Vaughan Farms Produce, Salem Berry Farm, and Brookdale Farm, all conveniently located a short drive from Sandbridge Beach. Each location offers fresh berries as well as a variety of other local produce, fresh baked goods, and family-friendly activities at some locations. Guests can choose to pick their own berries or make a quick stop to pick up already harvested berries.
Unfortunately, the 2021 Pungo Strawberry Festival is cancelled, but that means the fields are full of ripe, delicious berries ready to be picked and enjoyed by locals and vacationers alike! A great opportunity for making memories (and delicious treats) on your trip to Sandbridge!
