As for the recreation involving farming and fruit-picking, visitors to park can partake in strawberry-picking from January to May, and in blueberry-picking from the middle of July, until the beginning of September. The strawberry-picking activity includes a wonderful chance to eat to your heart’s content during the period of 50 minutes, while collecting the three brands of strawberries grown in the greenhouses – Benihoppe, Sagahonoka, and Akihime. The fare for adults is 1500 yen, for elementary school students and younger 1300 yen, for 3-year old children and younger 700 yen. Also, visitors can buy the delicious strawberries for 200 yen per 100g.
During the summer, everybody can take pleasure in collecting the tasty blueberries. However, this activity doesn’t have all-you-can-eat option included, but you can still savor some freshly picked blueberries for 300 yen (one cup), or 200 yen (for 100g).
But Okayama Farmers Market North Village offers other joyful pastime as well – other than picking fruits, visitors can try some horse riding at the Fureai Zoo, or spend some time with other animals while feeding them to their favorite food. For those who fancy romantic places with great view, we recommend staying the night at the lodging house built on the mountain side – there are countless ways to spend an unforgettable vacation and create many beautiful memories. How about spending some lovely time here with your family, friends, or your spouse?
