Sweet, juicy, and fragrant, ripe summer peaches are the pinnacle of the season's fresh produce, and since August is National Peach Month, there's no better time to enjoy them. Though you may not be able to get millions of them (cue the Presidents of the United States of America), we've hand-picked this list of restaurants, bakeries, and other spots in Portland where you can consume as much of the succulent stone fruit as possible in a myriad of forms, including salads, gelato, pizza, pie, drinks, and doughnuts, plus a few places where you can buy them or pick them for canning and eating on their own (preferably standing over a sink). For more inspiration, check out our food and drink guide.
