Fruit Stands & Markets

Fruit Stands

Being blessed with an abundance of sunshine, the valley has the perfect growing climate for fruits and vegetables. Cheers are the first to arrive, followed by apricots, plums, peaches, pears and apples. Heirloom tomatoes of every hue and shape, fragrant strawberries along with raspberries and blueberries make appearances at markets and road-side stands.
