Pearl Market Apple Time Right Downtown


Pearl Market

Pearl Market Apple Time is every Tuesday and Friday until October 13.

Sure, cooler temps bring winter, but that’s months away, and Pearl Market apple time will keep your mind off November and December. Next, find apples for the easy and delicious recipe below. While in the market, take notice of the different produce popping up in the market. In the coming weeks, summer and fall squashes will bring lots of color and nutrition to your dinner table. (Psst, did you know you can add shredded zucchini or yellow summer squash to meatloaf to get some more veggies in the kiddos, and they won't even notice? Shredded carrots also work like a dream.)

Once your shopping bag brims with fresh produce, stroll through the market to see what must-have finds await. For just a short time, Luzmila, The Sweater Lady, will offer all kinds of clothing that promises to keep you toasty warm. Not only will her sweaters take the chill off, but you'll be stylin', too. In the coming weeks, she'll also bring hats and mittens.

Now, we know you also want to be a big hit in the office during the coming fall days. So, make a double batch of the Pearl Market Apple Crisp and bring a pan to share with your coworkers. Okay, if that sounds like too much work, just stop by the market for some donuts. Because donuts make everyone’s day, and you'll be a complete rockstar.

So, whatever finds its way into your shopping bag, we can’t wait to see you.

Pearl Market Apple Time--Apple Crisp

Fruit Filling:

6 baking apples, peeled, cored, and cut into wedges

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons flour


1 1/4 cups flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

12 tablespoons butter (1 1/2 sticks), chilled and cut into small pieces

1/2 cup nuts, coarsely chopped


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

For the fruit filling:

Next, in a large mixing bowl, toss together the apples, lemon juice, sugar, and flour. Now, pour the apple mixture into a buttered 2-quart baking dish and set aside.

For the topping:

In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Once finished, use a food processor, a pastry blender, or your fingers and work the butter into the flour mixture just until it comes together and large clumps form. Now, fold nuts into mixture.

Next, sprinkle the topping evenly over the fruit, and you're almost ready to go. Bake the apple crisp until the fruit is bubbling, and the topping is golden brown and crisp, about 45 minutes.

Finally, serve the apple crisp warm with vanilla bean ice cream or fresh whipped cream, if desired.
