Milton Farmers Market held its Peach Festival July 25 on the grounds of Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton with record crowds attending. Within the first hour T.S. Smith's peaches were sold out, and they had reinforcements shipped over. Rehoboth Dairy Rustic Acres Farm peach ice cream was nearing the bottom of its barrel. The recipes of the day were peach infused.
