Take a bite out of Apple Festival

Crunch time at the Historic Farmers' Market

Posted By on Fri, Oct 25, 2013 at 3:05 PM

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, what about an entire day dedicated to apples? Health benefits aside, here’s a sweet event going down Saturday, October 26 at the Historic Farmers’ Market (1496 Lower Water Street).

Vendors (like Gold Island Bakery, Fox Hill Cheese House, The Spice Man, Food Wolf, Cocoa & Honey, Humble Burdock Farms and Satisfaction Feast) are taking a bite out of the season with their own Apple Festival. They'll celebrate the red fruit with cider, baked goods, candy apples, special treats and the 25 kinds of apples grown by Hutten Family Farms and Boates Apples.

It’s also a fundraiser for the Common Roots Urban Farm’s food bank CSA, so make sure to have a chat with those fine folks too and hear about all of their plans for next year.
