Peaches are back for the summer, and you’ll find them from Pearson Farms, Dickey Farm, and Watsonia Farms at the Grant Park Farmers Market. Sweet, plump, and juicy, these locally grown peaches are sure to go fast.

In addition to peaches at market, summer produce is going to be in full force. Local farmers will have plenty of squash, heirloom tomatoes, peppers, and more. It’s the best time of the year for the farmers market. Each week, organizers also offer music, free educational chef demos, and plenty of space to picnic with your family.

Come out and enjoy local food and a wonderful Sunday morning in the park at the farmers market. The Grant Park Farmers Market is located at 600 Cherokee Avenue and is open from 9:00am to 1:00pm.

Grant Park Farmers Market is managed by Community Farmers Markets in partnership with the Grant Park Conservancy.
