Upper West Side Farmer’s Market: Prospect Hill Orchards Apple Cider Donuts, Every Thursday and Saturday Only

Date October 6, 2011

Sure, fresh fruit and vegetables are great. But let’s be honest, the best thing to come out of the recent farmer’s market surge are the fresh-baked desserts. Take the cinnamon and sugar-coated apple cider donuts from Prospect Hill Orchards. I can’t walk by without purchasing at least six of these ($4); they’re fresh, delicate yet dense and small enough to eat two or three without feeling guilty. The small apple pies (price TBD) are also excellent, especially if you reheat it and pair it with vanilla ice cream. You can find these fresh-baked treats Thursday and Saturday only at the Tucker Square farmer’s market at Columbus Avenue and 66th street.
