Prospect Hill Orchards. It's more tart than sweet, and crunchy, almost like a Braeburn. I've been eating them all week, and plan on picking up a few for some sort of dessert treat. The orchard sells at the Tucker Square, Tribeca, Port Authority, and Ft. Washington markets.
Toigo Orchards stand. They're not organic, but they do use Integrated Pest Management--it means few chemicals, and using environmentally sensitive ways of dealing with pests. Also, their peaches are freaking huge, juicy, sweet and altogether perfect right now! They're like peach candy.
St. Stephens on the Upper East Side. It's small number of great stands means less of a crowd. Had I not just walked 50+ blocks, I would have sat and relaxed for a bit, maybe with a treat from nearby Two Little Red Hens. And another peach.
