Friends had told us about Parkesdale Farms shortcake, so we decided to stop by on our way home from the Tampa RV Supershow. From the street, this place looks like a funky little strawberry and citrus market in the middle of nowhere. But when we parked and got out of our car, we saw that we would have to be in line behind about 200 other people to get our shortcake.
According to their website, they sell 3,000 shortcakes a day during strawberry season, January through April. You can eat your shortcake at the tables outside, or take it inside the greenhouse, where you can have your picture taken on the Strawberry Throne and see photos of famous visitors including Presidents Bush and Obama, and Senator John McCain.
