The Season for Cider!

Cooler fall weather is finally upon us and it's time for cider!  Several of our vendors have multiple varieties -- from the traditional apple, to the newfangled pear, to the tempting apple blended with other fruits like cherry.  Have your cider straight up, mulled with cinnamon, allspice, cloves, ginger, and/or nutmeg and served warm, or stirred over ice with a good bourbon for a seasonal cocktail.  Make your choices at Barrett Elementary School in Arlington on Saturday, October 13, from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.  We'll see you at the Market!
