In search of peaches

  • 5

The peaches at the farmer's market looked great this morning but I was hoping to find a large basket right from the orchard. Thinking of driving out towards Fredericksburg since I have heard about peach stands out that way. We are new to the Austin area...any suggestions?

  1. I came through there last weekend. Nothing local is open yet. I will be going there again the weekend of the 28th and will let you know what is going on.

      Thanks...guess we will wait a week or two. Hope the hail today didn't pummel the peaches.

      1. The season has just started. You can expect most of the vendors to open by Memorial Day.

        1. Find a member of our local Kiwanis Club. They sell big boxes of peaches every year as a fundraiser. They arrive in late June/early July. Sometimes they are Hill Country peaches, sometimes they are NE Texas peaches, depending on the crops. I'm not in Kiwanis but have ordered some through a neighbor, so I don't have any more details. But they have been good every time.
