Cider Village at Union Square Greenmarket

October 9, 2023

Celebrate New York Cider at Union Square Greenmarket Cider Village! 

Union Square Greenmarket Cider Village 
Union Square West & 15th Street     
Friday, October 27, 2023

Now four years in the running, this year's annual Cider Village event is sure to impress! For one day only, cidermakers from across New York will join our market line-up on Friday, October 27 from 10am-5pm to peddle their fruity and funky libations.

Along the way, you’ll meet (and taste!) some rare apples varieties from the Hudson Valley Apple Project and get to see in real time how apples get mashed and pressed for cider. Big bonus: Kitchen Arts and Letters (@kalnyc) will be on the scene from 11AM-1PM with William Mullan (@pomme_william) and his book, Odd Apples! The book is a visual masterpiece documenting the wide, weird, and wonderful world of apples. If you haven’t had a chance to get your copy, now is the time!

So grab a friend, a lover, a family member and come on down to the Cider Village! Pick up a bottle you’ve never tried before, grab another bottle for a holiday gift, and learn something new!

This year's cidery line-up includes:

🍎 Metal House Cider @metalhousecider
🍎 East Hollow Cider @easthollowcider
🍎 NY Cider Co @nyciderco
🍎 Nine Pin Cider @ninepincider
🍎 Hudson Valley Farmhouse Cider @hudsonvalleyfarmhousecider
🍎 Original Sin Cider @originalsincider
