Welcome to Peach Party! | Dorothy Lane Market

Making its splash the month of July, 2024!

We’re Having a Peach Party and You’re Invited!

In the heat of summer, there is something so satisfying about biting into the ultra-sweet flavor of the perfect peach! That’s why we travel to California to meet with the best peach growers, finding the prime pick to bring to our annual Peach Party, which is making its splash shortly after the 4th of July and lasting all month! What do we look for in such a peach? We seek one that is tree-ripened, meaning that it remains on the tree and is hand-picked at just the right time for the ultimate peach experience. A tree-ripened peach has a higher Brix, or innate sweetness, resulting in an ultra-sweet flavor. When it comes to finding the perfect peach to highlight during our peach party, we are looking for a Brix at 10 or above. This ensures that you'll be grinning ear to ear when you take a bite! Look for beautiful Peach Party displays in our stores and for creations throughout each department highlighting this sweet peach.

Peach Party Perfection

Tree-Ripened to Peachy Perfection

Tree-ripened means these peaches are left on the tree longer and picked at their peak to maximize sweetness (aka a higher Brix). This also results in a superb mouthfeel.

11+ Brix
Brix Level

Brix is a way to measure the innate sweetness. At our Peach Party, our featured California Peach will have a Brix level of 10 or greater! Check our Brix sign to see what it is today.

Peachy Tips

Leave unripe peaches at room temperature a day or two on the counter or in a paper bag. You can store ripe peaches in the refrigerator. Take out of the fridge one hour before enjoying.

Grown in California

Our quest for an ultra-sweet peach often takes us to California where we look for a farm that uses natural pest control methods and reduced energy practices.

Look for “Ready Today” & “Ready Tomorrow” signs on our Peach Party display so you can plan your peach feast accordingly. We recommend that you utilize our Brix signs when picking your peaches.

Peach Party For Your Kitchen or Grill

Our Peach Party is a great reason to play around in the kitchen. When a good peach is ripe, its texture is similar to a tomato, so try subbing it in for one of your favorite tomato recipes. Excellent sliced for sandwiches, or plopped on top of warm, toasted DLM Artisan Bread slathered with thick Greek yogurt or ricotta cheese. When grilled or roasted, they add a whole new dimension of savory sweetness to desserts or salads. Pile on the arugula and add some nuts and crumbled goat cheese for an easy summer salad. Or, pair with blue cheese for your next fun cheese plate.
