It’s strawberry season in Prague, and the Czech Ministry of Agriculture has put together a handy list of where you can pick your own at farms across the Czech Republic. Why pick your own strawberries in Prague? They’re fresher than what you’d get at a local market, even a farmers’ market, and hand-selected so you know exactly what you’re getting. And cheaper: the cost per kilogram at most farms is less than half of what you’d pay for store-bought strawberries in a Prague supermarket. Spending some time at a strawberry farm on a nice spring day can also be a lot of fun – especially if you have some young children in tow. Strawberry season in the Czech Republic typically runs from late May to late July. If you’re planning to pick your own at a local farm, always check opening hours, which can change based on the weather. Here’s the local Prague farms where you can pick your own strawberries: Kunratické jahody – Václav Jakoubek V Jahodách 16, Prague 4 Price per kilogram: 42 Kč (72 Kč for pre-picked berries) Kunratické jahody – Václav Macháček V jahodách 1010, Prague 4 Price per kilogram: 42 Kč (76 Kč for pre-picked berries) SCHWENK Jahody s.r.o.
