Fredericksburg, Texas - Peach Season in the Texas Hill Country

The 2022 peach season in Fredericksburg is just around the corner and growers are expecting another great season. Area growers said peaches have received significant chill hours and are hoping that the area does not receive hail between now and the start of the season. Additional moisture will also help make the season successful. 
Roadside markets and orchards around Fredericksburg and Stonewall offer more than 20 different varieties of delicious Gillespie County peaches. The sweet fruit can be found clustered along Highway 290 between Fredericksburg and Stonewall, and along Highway 87, south of Main Street in Fredericksburg. For exact locations of some 15 roadside markets in Gillespie County and their hours and telephone numbers, visit TexasPeaches.com, the home page of the Hill Country Fruit Council. You can also find a great selection of peaches and other produce each week at the Fredericksburg Farmers Market, which continues through August 19.
