10 places to go berry picking around Vancouver this summer

Jun 3 2023, 7:00 pm

It’s berry season in BC and soon local farms will open up for u-pick so you can literally get your hands on all the berries you’re craving.

In the Lower Mainland, succulent strawberries are already starting to make an appearance at a farm near you.

There are plenty of spots throughout the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland where you can go out into the fields and pick a variety of local berries, from strawberries to raspberries to blueberries. The prices for u-pick berries are generally far better than what you’ll find in a grocery store, plus gathering berries yourself is a great summer activity.

Ready those berry pie recipes and make room in your freezer, because chances are you’ll be bringing home a bushel-full.

So grab a basket (or a bucket!), and a sunhat, and head out for one of the most summery of activities at our top picks for berry picking this season.
