Durham Produce

Brenda Durham and family have been coming to New Orleans from Chilton County, Alabama for 28 years with peaches and other stone fruit. In all those years, she’s never missed her market start date until this year when at the last minute, tropical storm Alberto that we here in New Orleans were all gearing up for a couple of weeks ago suddenly took a turn and headed for Alabama. Unlike our Cherry Creek Orchard friends to the north who lost their entire crop in a late freeze this year, the Durhams were largely unaffected by the storm. With dripping chins and juices running from wrists to elbows, we gladly welcome peaches, plums, and nectarines into our summer. Find them at the Tuesday, Thursday, and both Saturday markets.
