Dear EscapeMakers — Last chance! The season was extended due to the warmer weather this year, so there’s still a few pick-your-own orchards with apples to be harvested. Get out this weekend before they are all gone! Those Thanksgiving pies are counting on you! Plus, it wouldn’t be fall without apple cider doughnuts and hot apple cider. Stock up at farm stores across the state – you deserve a treat!
And of course, if you can’t travel, you can visit farmers markets in New York State and at Greenmarkets across NYC to stock up on your favorite variety of apples! Before you go, download a variety guide from the New York Apple Association:
