View Full Version : Halkirk Strawberries

24-Jun-09, 19:10
Yesterday I had my first strawberries of this year from Halkirk, what a treat they were.
I've been buying supermarket strawbs since the UK ones came in and they have been okay but I have to say the Halkirk ones are the Rolls Royce of Strawberries; such quality, and they are grown here in Caithness!!

Where do you buy them from ?

Last season Mackay butcher and Bews butchers, both in Thurso. They were delicious!!

Wick have the market, Thurso uses the butchers shops as speciality outlets.

How come Thurso doesn't have a market?
Was there one in the past ?
