Food Museum in Stowmarket hosts Apple Week with family fun activities
A town’s museum is spending October half-term celebrating one fantastic fruit: the apple.
The Food Museum in Stowmarket launched Apple Week on Saturday and offers visitors a chance to enjoy apple-themed activities from juicing and baking to sampling fruits from local orchards.
Saturday’s events also marked National Apple Day with recipes from Monica Askay, a meeting with Suffolk Traditional Orchard Group and family-fun activities with Suffolk Tree Warden Network.
There are also apple pressing workshops where visitors can use the museum’s hand-cranked press to create their own apple juice to take home.
The museum’s Feast café is showcasing a special menu apple-based dishes throughout the week including apple cake baked in a wood-fired bread oven.
Booking for workshops is essential and prices range from £5 to £60.
