    Apple-Lovers Guide to the Big Apple

    NYC’s Best…

    #1 Farms for Apple Picking

    Harvest Moon Farm & Orchard is a large farm stand with epic cider donuts, six varieties of apples to pick and a corn maze. Located in North Salem, the farm is only a 3 mile cab ride from Metro-North Croton Falls station.

    Dr. Davies Farm is an apple-pickers dream with over 4,000 apple trees on 35 acres. Located in Congers, NY, the Davies Farmhouse was built in 1836 making it one of the oldest pick-your-own farms in the country.

    The Orchards of Concklin is a family owned and operated apple orchard in Rockland Country for over ten generations. Visitors can pick their own produce and visit their bakery with fresh pies, cider donuts and pressed apple cider.


    #2 Market for Fresh Apples

    The world-famous Union Square Greenmarket offers an exciting shopping experience for locals and tourists alike with a selection of apples and ciders from upstate New York farmers and cooking demos by local chefs.

    #3 Apple Pie

    You’ll want to bring a big appetite for Serendipity’s “Big Apple” Pie — Serendipity 3, the 57-year old restaurant that served Jackie O and Andy Warhol regularly, is also home to NYC’s best apple pie.


    #4 Apple Cider

    Located in Queens, Descendant Cider Company is NYC’s only cidery and uses only New York State grown apples. Their must try “Descendant Dry” cider is light and lovely and can be purchased at Murry’s Cheese on Bleeker and Malt and Mold in Gramercy.

    Fittingly located on Orchard Street on the Lower East Side, Wassail is a restaurant and cider bar with a variety of ciders and apple-based cocktails.

    #5 Apple Juice

    Melvin’s Juice Box is not your average childhood juice — Melvin’s 100% organic apple juice is both incredibly tasty and healthy.

    #6 Apple Cocktail

    “Angry Apple” at The Smith in Lincoln Square combines vodka, fresh apple, jalapeño, apple liqueur and lemon, making one mean cocktail.
