Berry Delicious — 6/06/2024

Hand holding bowl full of blueberries

Berry season is nearly here — look forward to a sweet parade of locally grown berries starting with strawberries in June, and blueberries and raspberries in July. In this week’s cover story, we take a look at the coming season and offer a list of some places to pick your own. Also having a moment is lavender — and it has its own you-pick season at one area farm in July. And for seasonal treats you don’t have to pick, check out area farmers markets.

Also on the cover Find live music at area restaurants and breweries, some of which are taking the fun to patios or decks, in the Music This Week, which starts on page 30. Michael Witthaus heads to 42nd Street at the Palace Theatre (page 14). Enjoy tasty barbecue and eye-catching planes at the Aviation Museum of NH’s annual Fly-In BBQ (page 22).
