GET YOUR LUGS OF PEACHES! Palisade Peaches (Colorado) are back!

The bright yellows and reds of these peaches return after a tough year in 2020, when Palisade growers lost 99% of their peach crop to an early spring frost.

SPECIAL DEAL: Tree-ripened, sweet-and-juicy peaches come direct from small orchard in Palisade, Colorado, within days of being picked. Reserve your box of 30-40 peaches now.

Palisade peaches are famously grown on the Western Slope of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. Known for being extra juicy and extra sweet, thanks to long, sunny days and cool, dry summer nights in high-elevation Colorado, which help all those delicious fruity sugars develop.

Right now, the peach trees in Palisade are loaded with baby peaches. Freestone peaches will be available mid-August.

PRE-ORDERS ONLY! Reserve your box (a lug) now 

Box: 18-22 lbs, 30-40 peaches

Cost: $40.00 for members; $45.00 for non-members.

Palisade Produce is an herbicide-free small orchard operation. Full-grown, tree-ripened peaches. David Cox reports: “We have made it through the winter and spring freeze season with a good peach crop! After experiencing a late blossom, we are on track for a later than normal picking season. I know you are going to love these peaches!”

Expect a beautiful, large freestone peach that is firm and wonderfully sweet! These peaches are meant to be eaten not long after picking — or preserved by freezing or canning.

Looking forward in 2021!

2020 was a year of daily uncertainties and major changes at the Minnesota Street Market.  The phrase, “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger” just might apply. We have been made better by it all.

We have had our share of high-stress times this year — a perfect storm of equipment failures, staffing challenges, and financial challenges.

We adapted quickly to “social distancing” (a term none of us knew before March!) and wearing masks to protect those around us.  We have tried so hard to be both a safe place and a place of community when so many places were shut down. Even 1- to 2-minute conversations became so important. 

We have been persistent in finding ways to make needed capital improvements and replacing equipment. 

Our staff have been so admirably agile and adaptable in responding to change.

We have minimized supply bottlenecks. Our buyer has had such a keen, creative eye for keeping us well supplied.

The all-volunteer Art Committee did a revamp of our consignment program.  The art displays look fabulous and we have never sold more art.  

We were nimble in booting up curbside pickup and home deliveries, and people have been so appreciative. We received a beautiful card with a pop-up tree and handwritten message  that makes all the hard work worth it.

We have been blessed with deep loyalty of customers and volunteers, who help week-after-week.

We look to 2021, with healthier finances, an eye toward growth, and expecting better things to come.
