Sample a different variety of apple this weekend at your local farmers market. We have hundreds of varieties to try. If you usually buy your fruit from the supermarket you'll be amazed by the choice of varieties, flavours and textures of apples at our markets. The fruit is freshly harvested, direct from the farm to you. Later in the season fruit is stored to keep it in peak condition, but at this time of the year it's straight from the tree. You could eat a different variety every day of the year and never get bored.

We have hundreds of varieties of apples and pears at our markets; here's some to look out for;
