Sunday afternoon we ventured out to the farmer’s market that was set up near base. After much hassle trying to find a legal parking space anywhere within a mile of the event, we finally arrived at one of the biggest markets I had ever been to. Several streets were cordoned off to accommodate the throngs of people milling between the food, alcohol, and goods vendors. Oh, and let’s not forget this guy, he drew quite a crowd!
Apples are thrown in the curved trough and then the wheel is rolled over them to grind the juice out, super interesting, and I’m glad I wasn’t in the front row for this demonstration as juice was spraying everywhere!
We ended the day with the last Elstar apple they had. I intended to buy a bagful, but this was the only one left so they gave it to us for free. Man was it delicious, I definitely have a new favorite variety, so sweet and crisp, mmm.
