Borough Market Celebrates 10th Apple Day on Sunday 21st October 2018

Borough Market’s Apple Day celebrations include a tasting table of old, rare apple types from London and the regions supplied by Brogdale Horticultural Trust and other private donors and stallholders. Visitors can also bring their own mystery apples and see if the Apple Doctor can identify them. Families will be able to enjoy all things apple with a specially created story orchard - a small glade of young English apple trees where children can take part in arts and craft activities and listen to autumnal tales. Apple fans from the animal world will also be attending – including pigs from Hackney City Farm.
No apple celebration would be complete without food, and chef Kathy Slack will be cooking up a range of delicious apple and harvest themed dishes, whilst Borough Market’s traders will be offering apple focused goods including apple biscuits, apple cake and cider from the New Forest.
There will be a celebration of ancient seasonal customs with music, songs and performance by local historical theatre group the Lion’s Part. The ‘October Plenty’ procession will begin at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and culminate at Borough Market. Led by the Berry Man, the Autumn incarnation of the original Green Man, who is decked with wild fruits and foliage and carries an apple tree, the procession also features a huge Corn Queene effigy heavy with 'Plenty' - wheat, barley, apples, root vegetables and foliage from Borough Market - which will be dismantled and ceremoniously thrown to the crowd. They will also perform a heroic tale entitled ‘There be monsters’.
