The 14th annual Wayne County Apple Tasting Tour runs from October 1–31, 2011. Travel our scenic country roads, ablaze in autumn glory from market to market. Take this opportunity to explore the essence of the apple. Apple taste testing is one way to learn the differences in apples including taste, texture and scent. Shop for gift items and crafts and participate in the door prize drawings. Each stop is unique, as is the taste and texture of apples. Discover the flavors, colors, and sizes…apples are as individual as we are! New to the tour this year is Brownell’s Farm Market in Williamson.
Don’t miss the “Apple Tasting Tour Challenge”. This is a fun way to visit all of the markets. The tour is raffling off 4 Gift Baskets valued from $50 to $175 based on visits to the participating businesses. All you have to do is get your Apple Tasting Tour Challenge form “stamped” at each of your stops! Forms are available at the tour locations or by calling Wayne County Tourism at 800-527-6510.
As part of the tour a special “tasting weekend” is scheduled for Oct. 7-10, 2011. This weekend is filled with a variety of food samples and activities along the tour.
