Weekend Market Picks August 15 & 16, 2015: Sweet Pretty Juicy Peaches

Pretty Peaches

I wait all year long for peach season. Peaches are my favorite non-tropical fruit, and this year’s crop is particularly juicy and sweet! Several times I’ve bought enough for a peach pie, but I’ve ended up eating them all fresh because they’ve been so tasty. But I do love peach pie, so I’ll probably get around to making one this week. There’s really nothing like peach pie for breakfast.
