The third annual NYC Apple Day is just around the corner. We received a press release yesterday afternoon confirming that the free event will take place on Sunday September 26 from 11 am to 5 pm. Much like the previous two years, local businesses and farm vendors will congregate on Orchard Street between Grand and Broome.

Where: NYC Apple Day takes place on Sunday September 26 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will be on Orchard Street (in Manhattan’s Lower East Side) between Broome and Grand Streets.
What: NYC Apple Day is a unique festival where visitors can experience all things apple related. Right in the heart of the Big Apple, visitors will feel like “urban farmers” with countless varieties of apples — many transported from upstate New York from farms including Red Jacket Orchard. The day also includes many of the Lower East Side’s culinary venues (all getting in the apple spirit and incorporating the ingredient into their cuisine) retailers, cultural institutions, live music, activities for kids, and more.
Why: NYC Apple Day pays tribute to the neighborhood’s historical connection to apples. In the 1700s, the Lower East Side was home to an apple orchard owned by a farmer named Delancey. Today, both the farmer and the orchard are remembered in our street names.
