A reader emailed to ask if I know of a source to buy Palisade peaches in Colorado Springs, so I did a little research since I didn’t know of any off the top of my head. Here are some places you can buy Palisade peaches from right now:
Taylor Produce Stand (5885 Palmer Park Blvd.) has Palisade peaches available as of July 23rd according to their Facebook post.
As of Saturday, July 21st, the Promenade Shops at Briargate Farmers Market had at least one vender with Palisade peaches according to their Facebook post.
Taste of Life Natural Market in Monument is now taking orders for Palisade peaches; visit their website to order.
Old Colorado City Farmers Market had some early peaches in at the end of June so I would guess they would have lots now.
The Colorado Farm and Art Market mentioned that they would have freestone peaches last week, so perhaps Palisades will be coming in soon.
The markets that are part of the group Springs Farmers Markets also notes that they had peaches in at the beginning of July.
Various groups do a Palisade peach fundraiser – the main one that I know about is the CS Philharmonic Guild, which is taking orders through August 7th.
The Peachy Family is currently selling peaches at Phelan Gardens (4955 Austin Bluffs Pkwy) on select days – visit their Facebook page to see what types of peaches they have and when they’ll be at Phelan.
The Colorado State University Extension is offering boxes of peaches for preorder through August 21st.
If you know of other places to purchase Palisade peaches in the Colorado Springs area, please comment on this post or email me and I’ll add the information.
