Year-Round Farming Advice And Crop Harvesting
Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market’s Delray Beach and Boynton Beach locations offer year-round farming advice and field trips for people shopping at the market.
Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market was created by Arthur Bedner and his wife after they moved from Pennsylvania to South Florida. The farm was established in 1960 and is currently operated by Bedner’s three sons. The farm produces fruits, vegetables and pepper crops that are sold and distributed along the East Coast of the United States.
Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market also offers tips on picking and storing strawberries. Bedner’s recommends only picking bright red berries. They also suggest placing berries in the shade after they have been picked to preserve flavor.
“I visited the location for the first time with my family and I loved it,” said Nadia Cedillo, customer. “You can pick your own strawberries, peppers and tomatoes.”
In addition to picking personal produce, Bedner’s also offers tractor rides. These rides allow customers to learn about different farming operations and management practices and give customers the opportunity to examine South Florida’s natural landscapes.
“My class took a field trip there,” said Adriel Genao, fourth grade student. “We learned a lot about nature. I want to go to Bedner’s every day.”
Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market in Boynton Beach is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The Delray Beach location is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
