Millions of Peaches…

Well, maybe not millions, but lots and lots!

peachfest_poster2013This weekend in Northern California is the 14th annual Marysville Peach Festival, started by Jody Sodaro of Sodaro Orchards, which is one of my most favorite places to get local peaches and other fruits and veggies this time of year. I always love going to the Peach Festival because it has that small town charm, but with a myriad of vendors and musicians, it never feels ‘small’. Parking can be a little tricky since there’s a lot of folks who attend, but the festival and parking are both free which is really nice.

We always come home with several pounds of peaches, something fun (last year it was apriums), and the kids invariably find something at one of the craft vendors that they simply must have. When we first started going, I was the only peach eater in the family…I’m pleased that the family enjoys them more and more every year.

The festival is open on Friday, July 19th from 4pm-11pm and on Saturday, July 20th from 10am-11pm. See you there!
