Things to Do

The Gillespie County Peach Wars

By  | 

Peach production this year is not particularly strong; growers speculate why, but no one knows for sure.  There are lots of blackberries, and blackberry cobbler?  Wunderbar!

The Hill Country Fruit Council has lots of information about peaches on their website.  Many kinds of fruits and vegetables are grown in Gillespie County, and a great place to buy them direct from the grower is the Fredericksburg Farmer’s Market, each Thursday from 4-7 PM in the Kinderhalle at MarktPlatz.  Lately, ripe fruit may be gone in pick your own and stands by mid-morning, so plan to come early.  And remember, orchards are not theme parks, they are working farms, so behave yourself and keep the kids corralled.

There’s your marching orders, troops!
