The Greenmarket is back today, with fresh produce each week throughout the fall season. Today’s breakout star is certainly the apples, perhaps New York State’s most popular produce. Pick up the freshest local apples today while the Greenmarket is open until 3 p.m. To get you motivated, we have a a delicious fall recipe so sweet and delicious you will forget all about the words “pumpkin spice”—apple fritter rings! Read on for the recipe, because you have to see it to believe it.

Plenty of other seasonal fruits and vegetables are also available at today’s Greenmarket, as well as some fresh baked goods from our local vendors. GrowNYC has a handy chart of what’s in season that will come in handy as fall progresses. The Greenmarket will continue coming to the Garden every Wednesday until November 26, so come enjoy the crisp weather and pick up some healthy treats!

  1. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  2. 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  3. 2 cups buttermilk
  4. 4 teaspoons vegetable oil, plus 2 cups for frying
  5. 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  6. 2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  7. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  8. 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  9. 4 medium tart apples, such as Granny Smith, cored, peeled, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick rings


  1. In a medium bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon.
  2. In another medium bowl, whisk buttermilk, 4 teaspoons oil, and eggs. Stir in flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a large, heavy, high-sided skillet, heat 2 cups oil until it registers 375 degrees on a deep-fat or candy thermometer. (The oil should bubble rapidly when a drop of batter is added.)
  4. In batches, coat apples in batter and fry until golden brown, about 4 minutes per batch, flipping halfway through.
  5. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet to drain.
  6. Toss apples in cinnamon sugar and serve immediately.
