Dozens of specialty varieties of peaches, nectarines, plums, pluots, apricots and apriums from 11 local farmers will be sliced and ready for sampling at the 10th annual Organic Stone Fruit Jubilee this Saturday.
Attendees can speak directly with the farmers who grow the stone fruit, and purchase the produce farmers market-style from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at MOA Oasis Gardens, 2790 Indianola Ave., Clovis.
Creative artisan treats like pies, paletas, lemonade, cultured drinks, beer, pastries, jams, tamales, wood fired pizza and tacos are a highlight of the jubilee.
