These muffins were a bestseller at the farmers market this weekend and rightfully so. With fresh, juicy peaches sprinkled with cinnamon and ginger, these muffins are a perfect way to start your Sunday morning. They are super easy to make! Just pour yourself a cup of coffee, wake up, and say, "Good morning Sunshine...ginger muffins!"

I started and sell my baked goods at the Chesapeake farmers market in Chesapeake, VA with my family. Everything I know, I learned from my mother. I try to bake with what is fresh and local. Check out www.farmchicksproduce.com for more awesome recipes.
