Our last day open is this Sunday, October 25 from 9 to 7.

There is lots of Great Local Stuff now at Fruit Acres Farm Market in Coloma, MI. The farm market is located at 3452 Friday Rd, Coloma, MI, Open 9 to 7 everyday. All Fruits and Vegetables now at my market are FRESH FROM OUR FARM OR FROM LOCAL FARMS. (Except avocados, lemon, limes. )

We are selling Apples, Apples and More Apples. We have Local  Honeycrisp Apples. They are $26.99 half bushel (about 22 pounds), $16.99 peck box, $8.99 4 quart basket or $1.99 pound.

Please ask for a free sample of any Apple, so you can try them. We can't put out a free sample basket because of Covid, but if you ask for a sample (of anything), we can let you have a whole Apple to try. There is a sink nearby to wash the fruit before you eat.

Other Apples we have at the market now are Braeburn ($16.99 half bushel), Jon-a-Gold ($16.99 half bushel), Cameo ($16.99 half bushel), Old Fashioned Golden Delicious ($16.99 half bushel), Late Fuji ($26.99 half bushel). A half bushel of Apples weighs between 22 and 25 pounds each. All are available for peck boxes, 4 quart basket, or by the pound. Our last day open for the year will be Sunday October 25.

 Our Apple Cider is made from our own apples in a blend of several different kinds including Honeycrisp. It is made from 100% apple juice, NO Added Sugar, No Preservatives (so you can make hard cider out of it). To freeze cider for the winter, you must pour out a little (about 1/2 to 1 cup), reseal the lid and put in the freezer. The reason you take some out is so it does not expand when freezing and make a huge sugary mess in your freezer. It is still delicious after being frozen. I freeze several half gallons myself for drinking at holidays, and giving as Christmas presents. We are closing for the year Sunday October 25.
