Everything’s Coming Up Peaches! – Sat., August 12

Two Peach Festivals on One Sweet Day

If you like peaches, you’re going to love being in town on Saturday, August 12, this summer!

In the morning, Pennington Farmers Market will hold its 2nd Annual Peach Festival from 9 am to 1 pm. at Rosedale Mills.  While there, you’ll be able to sample peach-flavored treats, enjoy games for kids, enter the Baking Contest, and buy peaches from TreeLicious Orchard.

Bake-Off Rules:  All items must use peaches and be a baked item.  No refrigeration is available.  Submit items on disposable materials and include the recipe.  Submissions must be dropped off at the tent next to the band between 9 am and 10:30 am.  Judging takes place at 10:30 am. and will consider taste, appearance, and creative use of peaches.

In the evening, from 5 pm to 8 pm, head on over to the Annual Peach Festival at Pennington United Methodist Church, 60 South Main St. Tickets will be available for food purchases that include hot dogs with all the fixings and assorted desserts including–of course–peach cobbler and sweetened or unsweetened Jersey peaches!  All proceeds will benefit the African Cemetery Association in Pennington.

August 12–What a sweet day to be in town!
