Open early July through Thanksgiving (and weekends in December), the market offers a wonderful selection of local crafts, fresh produce, jams and jellies, tee shirts, and other gift items. \r\n\r\nPick-Your-Own and Select-Your-Own peaches and nectarines are available in July and August. During September, October, and November, over a dozen varieties of apples-- Gala, McIntosh, Golden Delicious, Jonathan, Red Delicious, Fuji, Winesap, York, Rome, Granny Smith, and Stayman, to name a few – ripen. Most varieties are available for Pick-your-Own.\r\n\r\nThe fall brings on gourds, Indian corn, mums, and more pumpkins than you have ever seen anywhere, and the best tasting cider money can buy. Don’t miss our famous Apple Cider Donuts in our bakery! \r\n\r\nThe biggest attraction at Carter Mountain, however, is the beautiful view overlooking Charlottesville, VA, during the Pick Your Own Apples season. It is truly breathtaking. \r\n\r\nSchool tours are available in September and October. Call us to schedule a tour this fall!
