It’s not too late to stop by the Holland Farmers Market to get some fresh and juicy peaches from the Leutzinger Farm!
Peak season for peaches is all of August, although we are entering September they are still producing and will have a late-season clingstone peach throughout this month.
Peaches offer multiple health benefits from supporting eyesight and the immune system, to proper digestion! They are nutrient-dense while still being low in calories and fat making them the perfect sweet treat.
