I’m totally pumped that the Edeka Strawberry stand in Parsberg is open again for the season. Strawberries are one of life’s little pleasures for me, as I’m sure they are for lots of other families out there. Soon the strawberry patch in Parsberg will be open, too, but for now, the strawberry stand at the grocery store will suffice.
I’ve eaten fresh strawberries like they’re going out of style already this season. I’ve made my first strawberry and rhubarb crisp, and strawberry and rhubarb pies are most certainly in my kitchen’s near future. Sharing strawberries and yogurt with Small Shaw will be one of highlights of the next few weeks of afternoon snack time around our house, too.
If you’re as excited about strawberry season as I am, you’ll be glad to know that the strawberry stand at Edeka in Parsberg, Germany is open. If strawberries aren’t your thing, the strawberry stand also sells fresh white asparagus.
Understanding German Business Hours
If you want to know when a business is open in Germany, you need to find out what their “Offneungszeiten” or “open times” are. It also helps to know what the days of the week are in German. “Do.” is the abbreviation for Donnerstag (Tuesday), “Fr.” is the abbreviation for Frietag (Friday), and “Sa.” is the abbreviation for Samstag (Saturday). Also, Germans use 24-hour time, so just like with military time, afternoon and evening hours will be listed as 13:00 and up, rather than as 1:00 and up.
The Parsberg Strawberry Stand’s Hours
Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
This asparagus and strawberry stand is located at the first Parsberg traffic circle on ST 2234, int he parking lot of the Edeka grocery story. One basket of strawberries cost €3,60, though I expect prices will drop as the season hits its peak.
