If you are heading to your local farmers market this weekend, you will be seeing more apples available now that fall has settled in.
Amy Gardiner, the market host for the Down to Earth Farmers Market on Fridays in New Rochelle, said some apple varieties "need some time to come to fruition."
She said they include Granny Smiths and Macouns.
"Pumpkins, Brussels sprouts and cabbages are all in the markets," Gardiner said.
She said with the days getting a little shorter and the nights a little cooler, "we are getting a second go at crops like spinach, herbs, broccoli and cauliflower."
For the weekend of October 25 and 26, people visiting the farmers market on Friday in New Rochelle and Saturdays in Larchmont will get a chance to do a apple tasting, Gardiner said.
The hours are 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday at the Down to Earth Farmers Market in New Rochelle (North Avenue in front of the high school) and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the New Rochelle Grand Market on Library Green, Lawton and Huguenot streets. And from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in Larchmont is the Down to Earth Farmers Market held at the Metro-North train station.
