This Week at DFM: October 23

by | Oct 21, 2021

The Davidson Farmers Market – Saturday 9 – noon.



As a nonprofit, we’re always actively raising funds, but DFM’s apples sales has grown to become our signature fundraiser of the year! DFM will have apples available every Saturday until Thanksgiving. Purchasing a pound (or more) of apples not only supports a N.C. small business but also supports the work and mission of DFM.

Apples available this week are:

  • Granny Smith Apples – great for roasting or baking as they won’t collapse (holding their shape). Perfect for tarts, pies, and tarte tatin;
  • Cortland Apples – terrific baking apples, these juicy and slightly tart apples are great for pies, cobblers, and crisps. Use raw, sliced in salads or on cheese plates;
  • King Luscious Apples – popular as an eating apple, King Luscious are also great for baking (ideally apple butter or pies.) They are the apples that Martha Stewart endorsed as “the apple for pie.”
This year shoppers can select pre-bagged apples or pick their own. Each Saturday is a limited amount, so make sure you arrive early to shop your favorite types of apples! Cash and credit card payments accepted.
