Where to Buy Michigan Peaches

Michigan Peaches are sold in many ways from u-pick, farm markets, small grocery stores, chainstores as fresh fruit and as a wide varieties of processed products.

Many commercial growers deliver their peaches wholesale to packers, processors, and marketers who in turn sell to various small and large retailers.

List below are many growers and peach suppliers in the Michigan region.

Most large peach farms are located along the west and east side of the state in the lower pennisula, nestled along the Great Lakes for protection from low temperatures. Peaches are grown elsewhere in the state on high ground such as the peach ridge area northwest of Grand Rapids area where temperatures are higher during cold spells.

The Michigan peach season extends from early July to mid September most years.
