Probably, but it depends what variety you have. My strawberries are quite early fruiting but last year I had a second flush in late September!

I would expect fruit for a few more weeks yet.

There are some strawberry varieties which are known as 'remontant' and these produce flowers and fruit continuously throughout the season (but not much and not as good flavour in my experience). The other types produce fruit in one go, or with a second crop as Cornishsally suggests, if you are lucky. Once your strawberries have finished fruiting you should cut back the foliage so that new leaves can grow and the 'crown' for next year can form.
