Sure, you can buy peaches in a can full of sugar water or dried in a bag, but “nature’s candy” never tastes better than when it’s fresh-picked in the Texas springtime.
And this year, local peaches are some of the premium pickin’s in the Lone Star State, thanks to some freaky freezes in early April that whacked a lot of the harvest in the Hill Country and parts west.
The peach fuzz of East Texas was spared such icy temperatures, and now’s the time to reap ‘em and weep at the succulent sweetness of it all at this Saturday’s Farmers’ Market on Main Street.
The Farmers’ Market will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday (and every Saturday until Oct. 17) on the one-block stretch of Main Street west of the downtown square. And with at least four vendors bringing fresh fruits and vegetables for sale, it’s a fair bet that there will be a nice selection on display.
And if you’re tired of fresh peach cobbler or peaches and cream, here’s something new and different: Jill McKeever’s cooking demonstration this weekend just so happens to include “Texas Peach and Jalapeno Salsa.”
The following is a list of vendors that had signed up by Thursday morning for this Saturday’s Farmers’ Market.
