You'll know that summer has come when you see all the beautiful red and fragrant strawberries around the streets of Carpentras and Velleron. It's a truly mouthwatering spectacle! Strawberries of all sorts: Ciflorette, Gariguette, Pajaro, or Mara des bois look attractive in picturesque baskets. Next to them you'll find all kinds of strawberry desserts, jams, syrups, sweets, and anything else you can imagine.
And while you're picking the perfect red delicacy and smelling the sugary sweet aroma, listen to some music and watch the Confrérie de la fraise Carpentras-Comtat Venaissin wearing ceremonial dress while holding their meeting. And don't miss the gigantic strawberry tart! Carpentras usually celebrates the strawberry feast in early April, and Velleron–in early May.
