SUDLERSVILLE — The hot, hu­mid weather a re­cur­ring theme for the month of Au­gust, didn’t keep hun­dreds of vis­i­tors from turn­ing out to the an­nual 2016 Sudlersville Peach Fes­ti­val at God­frey’s Farm, Aug. 6.

This year’s event had the ad­di­tion of a car show spon­sored by the Sudlersville Vol­un­teer Fire Co. and a Hogs & He­roes bike show. Win­ner’s were se­lected by peo­ple’s choice. Lo­cal mu­si­cal tal­ent Phillip Dut­ton and the Al­li­ga­tors and The Road­house Clams per­formed on the load­ing dock ‘stage’.

Lo­cal, ar­tisi­nal ven­dors dis­played wares in­clud­ing jew­el­ery, fine art, prim­i­tives and unique find­ings like Cap Cre­ations’ bot­tle cap art and Love Craft’s hand painted blue crab shells.

The high­light of the fes­ti­val though, is al­ways the fresh picked peaches from God­frey’s own or­chard. Peach ice cream, peach slushies, peach lemon­ade, and of course, the lo­cally known Sudlersville Ru­ri­tans fun­nel cakes with peach top­ping. St. An­drews parish re­turned this year with their peach cob­bler and Girl Scout Troop 534 of­fered a peach crisp.

You can still pick your own peaches if you missed the fes­ti­val and the God­frey’s Farm mar­ket is now picking sweet corn, toma­toes, can­taloupe, bell pep­pers and blue­ber­ries.

God­frey Farms is open now through La­bor Day at 302 Lea­ger Road in Sudlersville.

The cen­ter of it all, bas­ket­fuls of God­frey’s Farm peaches.

Too many de­li­cious op­tions to choose from at the Sudlersville Peach Fest.

God­frey’s Farm corn, mel­ons, peaches, toma­toes and more are of­fered for sale at the an­nual peach fes­ti­val in Sudlersville.
