Make your way to any one D.C.’s copious farmers markets this summer, and chances are stacks of fresh, seasonal strawberries will be one of the first things you see.
Unfortunately, the fruit will be out of season by the time August rolls around — which means now through July is the best time to find the freshest strawberry treats and drinks around the city.
Meanwhile, vertical farming startup Oishii brings its beloved berries to the D.C. market for the first time this summer. The ruby-red Koyo Berry, its luxe new Japanese varietal, features refreshingly sweet and slightly acidic flavors with a slightly firm texture. Starting Wednesday, June 28, find the coveted Koyo at the brand-new Walter Reed Whole Foods Market and in dishes at a few fancy D.C. restaurants. Minibar by José Andrés plans to highlight the Koyo during select summer events at the two-Michelin-starred tasting room.
