June and July are the best time to pick berries in Alsace. It is also a good opportunity to experience the countryside, relax and have a chat with locals. We like this activity a lot. Local farmer’s markets have a lot of berries, but the prices will stop you from buying in bulk. At the fields, we can choose the best berries and buy literally kilograms of them :).
