Buying Strawberry Baskets in Bulk?

July 13, 2004

I have been trying to find those strawberry baskets to buy in bulk. I have a huge strawberry garden and would like to start selling them next year. I need the baskets to sell them in. Anyone know where I can buy them?

I would go down to your local nursery and ask them. Or, go to your local farmer's market and ask one of the vendors who has them. If you have a farm supply store you could check there.

Find the baskets that have a snap down lid. My mom and sister have a stand at the local farmer's market and were able to buy some from the grocery wholesalers (a box of 500 for $100 Canadian)(20 cents each.) Well worth the cost. Ask the local grocery store where they buy theirs and see if they will allow you to buy a box from them if you cannot get some from the wholesalers.

Other containers that do not have a lid and are therefore open at the top can easily spill their contents if you are not careful. These clear containers with a lid look much more professional than the little green open baskets that some of the farmer's stands have. Plus the open baskets need to be put somehow into a plastic bag as you sell them so the berries won't spill for your customer, which is a pain and also time consuming when you are at the market. I have helped my mom and sister at their stand for years when we used the little green baskets and now with the clear lidded ones. Good luck.

I also have a large strawberry patch and will be selling berries next year. But, I will be picking the berries into 4 cup plastic containers and when I deliver the berries I will "dump" the berries into my customer's containers so that I can keep my containers and use them again. This is what I do when I sell my raspberries in the summer. My customers know that this is what I do, but I sell privately not at a farmer's market. Where you will be selling the berries will determine what kind of container you should or could use. Have fun next year. Fresh strawberries are wonderful!
