Savor the Sweetness of Summer at Peach Day
"An apple is an excellent thing -- until you have tried a peach." 
-- George du Maurier

It's probably no coincidence that the beautiful blush of a peach is so reminiscent of a summer sunset. They are both magical. Eating a plump peach while standing over the sink and letting the juices run down your face, or filling a bowl with freshly sliced freestones and covering them with sweet cream... these are the simple joys of summer. Come celebrate one of nature's finest masterpieces this Saturday... in all its delicious forms... fresh off the tree, baked in a pie, blended into frosty ice cream, piled atop a warm waffle, or floating in a cool glass of Sangria. Kids can have some fun with peach crafts and Buy Fresh Buy Local will kick off National Farmers' Market Week with some prize giveaways. As always, we'll have live music and lots of warm smiles and good conversation. See you in the Circle!

Peach Blueberry Cobbler
The Smitten Kitchen rarely (if ever) misses the mark. And in this case cook and author Deb Perelman hits it right outta the orchard! This recipe came highly recommended by Amy Boccadoro, West Ward resident, manager of the West Ward Community Initiative (during the week) and fruit seller at Phillips Farm on the weekend. Amy knows fruit. And she's a stellar baker to boot. So what makes this seasonally perfect Peach Blueberry Cobbler so unique? It's the stoneground cornmeal! It adds a nice texture and a rustic touch to the fruit's sweetness. Try it for yourself!
