Apple Festival

The Apple Festival is a community-wide event that celebrates apple season. The highlight is a community cider pressing—bring your apples to press with our presses!  We’ll have three-one just for the kids! The Market also offers fresh pressed cider for donation as a fundraiser. The apple dessert contest is always hotly contested and it open to any kind of dessert featuring apples. Please bring your entry to the Market by 9:30. Judging begins at 10 am. Entries are judged on appearance, overall quality and “appleness”.After judging, desserts will be available for $2 a slice to benefit the Market. First prize is $100, 2nd-$30 and 3rd-$20. Thanks to our Market sponsors Skyline Bank, the Town of Independence, Grayson County and the Matthews Foundation.

This is the last day of the outdoor Market.  Don’t worry, you can shop On-line! Order from Wednesday evening to Monday evening and come by the Grayson LandCare/IFM office at 104 Courthouse Street between 4-6 pm to pick up your order.
