Part of Donnie Bishop’s job at the Fruita Farmers’ Market this summer is spreading the word about Palisade’s Peach Festival coming up this week, Aug. 14-17.

As Bishop is this year’s president of the Palisade Lion’s Club, he is telling everyone, everywhere he goes, about all the activities with fun, food and wine at Riverbend Park and downtown Paliade.

He won’t be in Fruita next Saturday because he will be talking to the visitors at the festival. Never fear, Donnie Bishop will be back selling Palisade peaches, produce and pies the next Saturday morning this season, because he is the unofficial peach ambassador telling the world about how “Life tastes good in Palisade.”
