First Local Strawberries of the Season

I have been gathering ingredients for the last couple of days for a private Home Restaurant tonight.  Dessert is a chocolate tart with vanilla coconut ice and I wanted to finish it with strawberries.  Yesterday I ran down to the Penn Quarter Farmers Market right as it opened at 3:00 hoping to find some–  Garners Produce was selling their firsts of the season.  I thought I had a good chance of finding them because Martin-Lane had found one ripe strawberry in our garden earlier in the week. strawberries
