It’s summertime in South Texas, and local producers offer a range of items. Three local stands include:

•Garden Fresh Produce: Chester Laskowski and Fred and Diane Spencer offer a variety of produce. Their stand offers onions, red potatoes, carrots, a variety of squash, tomatoes, peppers -- serrano, bell, and jalapeńo -- and both picklers and slicing variety of cucumbers. Also, watch for okra and cantaloupes.

Laskowski’s “Chetski’s hot sauce,” made from farm-fresh produce from Laskowski’s garden, is also available for purchase.

Hours are Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., sometimes later, at their location on U.S. 181 North between the South Texas Ice and Richardson Bros. in Floresville.

For more information, call 830-393-6767.

•Rhew Orchards: The Frank Rhew family offers soft canner peaches to make preserves, jams, cobblers, or just to eat, available in various quantities; homemade peach ice cream, peach sorbet, “made from scratch” peach cobbler, candies, bread, and cookies. Lavender products, such as soaps, lotions, candles, body scrubs, and mists are also available. Call ahead or email for cobblers and pies.

Hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sundays from 1-5 p.m. at their stand located at 762 C.R. 403, 5 miles east of Floresville off S.H. 97.

Local growers are present from 9 a.m. until noon; some growers may set up at 8 a.m. and stay until 2 p.m., or until their goods -- corn, squash, and assorted tomatoes and peppers -- are gone.
