Where to Get Fresh Peaches in the Midwest
With peach season finally underway, anyone who loves fruit is on the hunt for the best local peaches to enhance their crowd-pleasing summertime foods – both sweet and savory! Our favorite orchard to get freshly picked peaches here in the Midwest is Rendleman Orchards – a fantastic family-owned business established in 1873 that’s committed to growing incredible fruit, supporting local business, and utilizing their land to build amazing experiences for our community.
Shop Rendleman Orchards’ fresh peaches in their onsite Farm Market everyday of the week! In the Farm Market you’ll also find their peach preserves, their popular Peach Cobbler mix, and their perfectly sweet and spicy Hot Peach Salsa (a personal favorite), some fun well-designed Rendleman Orchards SWAG, and lots of other wonderful products from local businesses.
With that said, experiencing a Saturday and Sunday at Rendleman Orchards during peach season is a must. They transform their property into a hub of local businesses buzzing with their best products on display to buy. Crown Brew, one of the best coffeeshops in Illinois (easily the entire Midwest), will be at Rendleman Orchards every Saturday this peach season with their famed drinks and excellent staff. We absolutely love that these two businesses are together on the same property and we are elated to support them both!
What makes peach season at Rendleman Orchards especially outstanding is their Instagram-worthy orchard experience that makes for the perfect adventure for friends, families, and solo travelers who want to enjoy peaceful sweeping views of Southern Illinois. Rendleman Orchards’ Zinnia Fields attract people from around the world to get that perfect photo standing in the gorgeous landscape dotted with color. Be sure to keep an eye on Rendleman Orchards’ social media to know when the Zinnia Fields are blooming, so you don’t miss out!
