Pick-Your-Own Peaches at Eckert's (951 South Green Mount Road, Belleville, Illinois; 618-233-0513)

Update: This year's peach picking is cancelled. We spoke to the folks over at Eckert's to find out what happened and what will replace it.

Eckert's offers pick-your-own options throughout the season, but nothing tastes quite like summer like peaches. It's not quite time for peaches yet -- blueberries just ended, and blackberries will start around June 28 -- but you can bet we'll be picking a few pounds of the sweet fruit when it is. You can check Eckert's harvest hotline for daily updates on what produce is available before you make the trek to Belleville.

Pick your own peaches at Eckert's isn't happening this summer. Crop was too damaged by our crazy winter.
