North Carolina is the 7th largest apple-producing state in the nation and Henderson County is the largest apple-producing county in North Carolina. Henderson County growers produce 85% of North Carolina’s apple crop, which generates about $30 million to the local economy.

Fresh apples, pumpkins, cider, produce, baked goods, jellies, honey and other items may be purchased at the various roadside apple markets or produce stands located throughout Henderson County. Some orchards allow you to pick your own apples.

Several of the stops along the way, will feature craft vendors, selling such items as: pottery, soap, wreaths, aprons, jewelry and baskets.  Food Truck menus include hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken wings, lemonade, soda and more.
