I've been hearing from multiple sources how fantastic this year's Colorado peach crop is going to be.
And coming up this weekend is the 40th Annual Palisade Peach Festival. It's been 40 years for the official festival, but apparently "Peach Days" has been a popular event in the Palisade area since the 1800s.
If you can't make it through Colorado to buy local, you can order direct from growers.
The Denver Food Examiner recommends Walcher Orchards and High Country Orchards.
