Friday Aside: Locally Grown Blueberries in Redlands

By Michael Reiter, Attorney at Law.

I have written about local agriculture before ( Locally Grown Strawberries in Redlands, Growing and Selling Crops and Agricultural Products in the Inland Empire , Front Yard Fruit Stands in Redlands).

Last night, at Redlands’ Thursday Market Night, I had the locally produced blueberries from Soffel Farms in Redlands.  I first heard about the blueberries in a Redlands Daily Facts article last year because they had you-pick blueberries.  I asked the woman at the stand if they were going to do that again this year, and she said they were in a few weeks.

In addition to blueberries, they have raw honey, avocados, and oranges.  They have a stand at 1545 East San Bernardino Avenue, Redlands, CA 92374 at the corner of Dearborn and San Bernardino Avenue, near the Redlands Sports Complex also known as the AYSO fields.  I haven’t been there yet, but it appears on Google Street View that the entrance is on Dearborn.
According to the flier they are open 7 days a week, Monday through Friday 12 to 6 p.m and Saturday and Sunday from 9 to 5 p.m.
