Spring has sprung, gardens are growing and the local farms and markets are opening!
U-pick is one of my favorite summer activities with the kids. It gets them outdoors, keeps them entertained and hopefully encourages them to eat some fresh produce.
Whether you simply want to purchase locally grown, fresh fruits and vegetables or pick them yourself, there are plenty of options around the Umpqua.
