Where to Eat Peaches in Seattle: Summer 2021 Edition

Fritters, Pie, and More
August 2, 2021
Metropolitan Market's annual "Peach-O-Rama" celebration features peaches that have been tested with a refractometer for sweetness. (Metropolitan Market)

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 Seattle where you can consume as much of the succulent stone fruit as possible in a wide variety of forms, including fritters, salads, ice cream, pie, and cupcakes, plus places where you can buy them to eat on their own (preferably while standing over a sink). For more inspiration, check out our food and drink guide.
