London Farmers' Markets | October is all about Apples

October is all about Apples

Oct. 6, 2023

Well, that's not quite true, there is of course lots more than just apples, the grape harvest will be underway in the vineyards and many other fruits and vegetables are coming into abundance this month.

On Saturday October the 21st we celebrate Apple Day in the UK. Like a good wine, an apple is the product of it's 'terroir' , how it was cultivated by the farmer, it's variety, and it's vintage, and this year is a good year! At our markets you will find many heritage varieties of apple that you will not find in the supermarket. If you see something you have not come across before ask for a taste and hopefully you will discover something wonderful. At our Parliament Hill market Brambletye Fruit Farm will be offering samples of their apples and juice.

Look out for Perry Court Farm who have one of the most extensive ranges of heritage apples in the country, Chegworth Valley, Pippins Orchard, Akiki Organics and many more farms that produce apples and sell them at our markets.

There will be two prize draws running in October, one to win a hamper which this month will have heritage apples, apple pie, apple juice, apple chutney... you get the idea. The second draw, as the grape harvest is also underway, will be for something wine related which we will reveal on Instagram so keep an eye on our Insta page for you chance to win!

And don't forget your pumpkins for Halloweeeeeeeeen!
