This year New Jersey will produce over 66 million tons of peaches, making it the fourth largest producer of peaches in the nation.
To celebrate this prolific bounty six Collingswood restaurants are once again showcasing this Jersey crop in their Just Peachy celebration. Just Peachy runs August 7 through the 9, though all of August is designed as Jersey Peach Month by the NJ Peach Council. Participating restaurants will spotlight Jersey peaches on their menus as appetizers, entrees and desserts.
Participating restaurants are The Tortilla Press, The Pop Shop, Villa Barone, Nunzio Ristorante Rustico, El Sitio and Centanni Pizza and Grill.
“This is one more way that the Collingswood Farmers Market links restaurants and farms to benefit the guest,” explains Chef Mark Smith of Tortilla Press. “Of course people know and love peach desserts, like pie and cobbler - but there is so much versatility to this fruit. And no one is better placed to show that than the restaurants in our town.”
