Sunday 26th October saw Autumn well and truly arrive in London as Borough Market celebrated ‘Apple Day’. Every year Borough Market celebrates the harvest with hymns, parades and other festivities. In celebration of apples, and Borough Market’s 1000th birthday, Apple opened up ‘The Real Apple Store” with a wall dedicated to a vast variety of apples. Who knew there were over 1000 types of apples?!
I love Borough Market. Having grown up in a family of foodies any foodie market is a delight. Especially when they’re as impressive as London’s Borough Market. There’s new tastes and smells on every turn and, with the majority of stalls allowing you to taste before you buy, you should turn up with an empty stomach and a full purse.
Of course Autumn isn’t just about apples, there’s squash, of all varieties, and pumpkins. Lots and lots of pumpkins – bloomin’ ginormous ones at that!
Then there’s cheese and chutneys, and mulled cider and wine and toffee apples. Mulled ciders are a must for any autumn festival and, although the weather was unseasonably mild this year, the warming spices added to the celebratory atmosphere.
Did you go to apple day?
