Make a fun day out of visiting u-pick farms throughout Miami and South Florida, where you can pluck your own fruit and vegetables straight from the plants. It’s fun, cheap and fresh.
Find strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, star fruit, lychee, herbs, flowers and more. We encourage you to try the tropical fruits, such as mamey, anon, chocolate sapote and the papaya. Thirsty? Try the coco frio, which is refreshing cold water straight from the coconut.
First, we’ve got a few tips for you, but keep scrolling to find addresses and more information on actual locations!
It’s a good idea to check the weather and the produce calendar in advance – as well as to call ahead (phone numbers are listed below). Conditions change quickly and produce may have been picked already. Some farms are only open during the season, while others are open year-round. Some take cash only.
Dress for the occasion
Get ready for dirt. Consider wearing comfortable shoes or boots, gloves, a hat, and sunscreen. Bring bags or boxes to carry the produce and put it in the trunk of the car. Schedule your outing for when the sun is not at its brightest, like the morning.
Only pick what you can eat and store before it goes bad. Remember to rinse the produce well and air dry at home before eating.
