Leah, a bit of searching around the Web and I came up with lots of information on growing strawberries i Kenya. People are saying the crio has enormous potential, both for local consumption and for export. And not only the fruits, but also the leaves! http://farmbizafrica.com/index.php/ho...

You don't say where you live, but of course, that will play a big role in where you can find good advice and how and where you can market your fruit.

You also don't say how old you are, but there's a Young (Kenyan) Farmers Market Facebook page, with lots of links and information. https://www.facebook.com/youngfarmers... Look at these photos: https://www.facebook.com/youngfarmers...

No strawberries--yet. But here's a link I found on the Young Farmers Market homepage (https://www.facebook.com/youngfarmers...

The Facebook group looks like a good starting point. Why not become active with them? And good luck to you, Leah.
