Apple Week
Slow Food USA has run an Apple Week in New York City.

Historically, and "Apple Day" or "Apple Week" has occurred around Halloween on October 31.

October 24 — 30
Apple Week
Slow Food NYC
The goal of Apple Week is to draw attention to the great variety and excellent quality of our regional apples, particularly heirloom varieties like the Newtown Pippin, and to support the family farmers who produce them. Re-establishing the Newtown Pippin in our region is an important part of this program. Participating restaurants will be offering special apple-inspired items and donating proceeds to Slow Food NYC for each apple menu or dish ordered. Slow Food NYC will use the proceeds to provide young Newtown Pippin trees to regional family farmers with the goal of increasing the availability of this delicious and historically significant apple. Other Apple Week events include: Saturday Kids' Apple Festival at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket and apple cooking demonstrations at the Union Square Greenmarket.
