Try Our World Famous Strawberry Shortcake (available January 2nd – mid April)
Every winter, people flock to Parkesdale Farm Market from across the United States, even as far as Europe and Asia, just for a bowl of our World Famous Strawberry Shortcake! Served fresh from the fields, sweet sliced berries sit atop a bed of shortcake with a healthy dollop of whipped cream as garnish.
Our shortcake has been an ever improving recipe to combine the tastes of the south with the appeal of the north for the perfect shortcake. A little like a biscuit with a touch of cake, our shortcake is just sweet enough to compliment the juicy strawberries and moist enough to soak up all the sugary flavored berry juices.
A grand attraction in its own right, during the annual Plant City Strawberry Festival, Parkesdale Farm Market caters to the town’s love of berries with our very own Strawberry Throne. Sit, put on your crown, hold your roses and enjoy the chance to be Queen or King for the day. Enjoy a break from the hustle and bustle of Festival days by taking a break at one of our tables, set amid a tropical garden and lush flowers and foliage, to try our fresh milkshakes, shortcakes, and other delectable treats. Our Market sits directly on your route to or from the Festival each year, don’t forget to stop and pick up your own berries and more to take home!!
