Summer time is in full swing at Hinton’s Orchard & Farm Market. Peaches are the main fruit in the market this time of year along with some apples, cantaloupes and watermelons. A full selection of vegetables is also available: squash, zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, sweet corn, and plenty of tomatoes. Don’t forget to try some of Hinton’s famous peach ice cream during your visit!
