Grilling and Father’s Day go hand-in-hand. The perfect way to celebrate involves cooking over open flames and gathering outdoors with the ones you love. The environment, people and food make this day memorable.

Market Street wants to help you make this day even more special with their quality ingredients and seasonal produce. This Father’s Day incorporate some of summer’s best produce (peaches!) to highlight how sweet dad is.

Spicy Peach Grilled Pork Tenderloin combines sweet, spicy and salty into one outstanding recipe that will make dad feel extra special.


Two pork tenderloins are marinated overnight in a chili-infused mayonnaise. Before grilling, the tenderloins are coated with peach preserves to give them a layer of sweetness. Fresh peaches from Market Street’s produce department are then grilled to caramelized perfection making them this dinner’s perfect partner.


The grilled peaches may be my favorite element of this meal. When selecting the peaches be sure to get a variety of peaches to grill. Market Street’s selection ranges from white to yellow— the bounty of Market’s Street’s peaches is a delight to encounter. Be sure to check-out Fredricksburg Co. Peaches—they are fresh from the Hill Country, and are a shining star.

Peach season is one of my favorite seasons at Market Street—and when combined with celebrating the men in my life who give and serve with all their hearts, it’s basically the sweetest thing happening in June.
