Pickings Aren't Slim For Snohomish County Produce -- Vegetables, Fruits Aplenty
The pickings are anything but slim at Snohomish County U-pick farms and produce stands.
Whether you're after strawberries, cucumbers, corn, broccoli or pumpkins, chances are in season you'll find them - and more - at one of the many farms or stands in the county. And if you'd rather not do the picking yourself, many will do it for you.
Many U-pick farms open next week.
