What a cute find!

After an unsuccessful apple shopping trip at a different orchard, we accidentally wound up here. As we approached, we could tell Catoctin was in a way different league.

To start, they have a cute outdoor area and all around were many, many pumpkins of all sizes. Of course we took 2.

Going inside the market you immediately smell deliciousness from all directions. Mostly though, the bakery full of freshly baked, gorgeous and inviting goods. Couldn’t leave without some fresh apple dumplings.

The apple selection here is plentiful! The prices were a hair higher than some other places I’ve been too but I was happy to pay it with the wide variety they had. The next several weeks my house was filled with apple foods (my healthy homemade apple sauce, killer apple cider and an apple pie were just the start) and I gave plenty away from this one trip!

The staff, maybe a family, were too kind. Icing on the cake.  The only reason I’m not leaving 5 starts is because you can’t pick your own here. Apple picking is one of my favorite autumn activities. Virginia has several orchards you can do that. Regardless, will miss not being around next autumn for apple season with Catoctin Orchard.
