Although I feel like I’m still reeling from the Trump announcement which I’ve covered here, but I have nothing more to add yet. So, here’s some pictures of Apple Day..! These pictures are a couple weeks old now. There’s been two holidays and a presidential election since and it feels more like a couple of years…
You may be wondering what the hell is Apple Day? Apple Day was created in 1990 and intended as a celebration of the richness and diversity of not just apples, but all crops and land types in Britain. You can read more here on the official website. When I discovered Apple Day at Borough Market I was immediately excited. Borough Market is one of my favourite places to spend an afternoon in the capital anyway, and as discussed here I’ve been making a concerted effort to enjoy Autumn this year.
I don’t think me or any of my friends quite knew what to expect at Apple Day but we had so much fun! Highlights included apple-tasting, morris dancing, a parade, a conkers competition, people in medieval garb and animal costumes, apple cooking demonstrations, the Berry King, a harvest themed music installation, apple-peeling competitions and the Corn Queene, a huge figure made entirely from vegetables and plants.
The stalls of Borough Market had also risen to the occasion. I bought a loaf of this incredible sourdough and sadly just missed out on the autumn ales and beers. I also just want to point out my friend Sam below who I’m sure you’ve seen on this blog before. The t-shirt he’s wearing is his own design, specifically influenced by William Morris! If you dig it you can read about it and buy one too from this link.
I’m wearing: red skirt – £3, charity shop. Black Levis jacket – vintage, borrowed from Ryan . Blue cardigan – Topman, borrowed from housemate. Paisley shirt – £7.99, Beyond Retro.
