MSP - Where to find the best cider
I'd love to find some unpasteurized apple cider before it's gone for the season. Where can I find the best cider in town?
I have been finding Hoch's unpasteurized organic cider in half-gallon containers at the Mississippi Market co-op, and it is delicious.
Bob's Bluebird Apple Orchard at the St. Paul Farmer's Market. I've been drinking the Hoch Orchard cider (cold treated with UV light) from Mississippi Market as well when I don't make it to the farmer's market, but I think the stuff from the farmer's market is just a little bit tastier.
Fireside Orchard and Gardens sells at the Mpls. FM, and I've been absolutely pleased ( and then some) with their cider this year - a nice tart bite to cut through all the apple sweet. Just stopped in last Sat. and there weren't so many jugs out. I'd give it a try, but I may have to arm wrestle you for the last one! Quince mention Bob's at the StP market - also very good, but to my taste a little sweeter. If you like the sweet, it's a good buy at 4 bucks a half gallon.
