We will be open December 16th from 11 to 3 which is our final day for this season. However, we are happy to meet any day at your convenience – just call us in advance to pick up things that you may want for the holiday – fresh apples, a bottle of our wine, a 6-pack of our hard ciders or a pie you can bake in your oven! (269) 244-5690. We realize our market location on the hill is not “winter friendly” so we are ready to help bring your purchases to your car for those who prefer not to get out in our snowy driveway and want curbside service! Here’s a customer who stopped this week and not even a little snow could keep their little ones off the big slide!
Here’s what we still have (until they run out!) for our final Saturday or for an appointment pick up.
Baked goods: frozen take and bake pies in many flavors
Apples, see list below of what we still have
Organics: garlic, kale, spinach, lettuce
Alcohol products: We’ll also have hard cider, brandy, wine, and if you want to try before you buy, come to tasting on Saturday the 16th from 1-3. Peggy is hosting it in the warmth of the bakery.
Other: honey, maple syrup, meat.
End of Season apple specials:
Buy any size bag of apples and get a free bag of Golden Delicious apples the same size (1 free bag per customer–of the largest size bag you purchased). In other words, buy a 1/2 bushel of Romes, a peck of Jonathan, and take a free 1/2 bu bag of Golden Delicious.
Picked Apples on the market: Apples are going fast so don’t delay…..
Jonathan: Pretty and popular, used for fresh eating and cooking, a favorite for apple butter and taffy apples.
Northern Spy: The professional baker’s dream, cooks up well in applesauce, pie and other dishes.
Red Delicious: America’s most popular apple “back in the day.” Best for fresh eating and snacks. Full-flavored sweet taste.
Golden Delicious: A gingery-smooth, sweet taste under a thin skin. It’s the most popular yellow apple, good eaten fresh, baked or cut in salads.
Fuji: Has a fantastic sweet flavor and tart flavor, with a low acid content. An incredibly good keeper, it says crisp for weeks without even being in the refrigerator.
Red Rome: A big, round very red apple, mild sweet flavor. Holds it shape and flavor when baked.
Apple Cider is gone for the year, we all miss that for sure! Our bakery is now closed for the year, so sorry, no donuts, cookies, muffins, just “take and bake” pies from the freezer.
Many of you have asked where you can get our hard cider during our off-season. The Local Bar in Centreville has a great bottle selection and usually stocks five or more of our ciders. The Riviera Bar in Three Rivers also carries a few of our ciders, and we’ll be reaching out to some more stores now that we’re mostly done at the market. You are always welcome to schedule a time to drop by and buy some wine, brandy, and hard cider as well – 269-244-5690.
Animal apples: We have our apple “seconds” available for purchase at $5 a bushel, bring your own containers please.
Free Pallets: If you would like some, give us a call and we can make arrangements to get them for you.
Everyone at Corey Lake Orchards thanks you for buying local and wishes you all the best in this winter season!
