Cider Fest at the Stockton Market
October 20, 2017 - October 22, 2017Free
Join Stockton Market and New Jersey’s own Ironbound Hard Cider for CIDER FEST, this October 20, 21 and 22. Sip and savor Ironbound’s variety of boozy apple elixirs, pressed from apples grown on regenerative orchards of New England and the Mid-Atlantic. New Jersey was known for supplying the best cider in the colonies before it was even called New Jersey—and Ironbound stays close to its roots—literally. They are growing ancient apple varieties that cidermakers in Colonial America used for their infamous ciders of old.
What pairs well with such legendary cider? Well, delicious savory and sweets featuring harvest apples, artisan craft shopping, and Friday night live music of course!
