We’re not sure if there’s any more quintessential fall treat than a caramel apple (apple cider and cider donuts may be a close tie). We ask our readers for their favorite and added our own. Some you’ll find at apple orchards and pumpkin farms. Others are available at retail outlets throughout the area. We love that you can find the most simple to the fanciest right in our backyards.
Let us know if your favorite didn’t make it to this list and we’d love to add them!

The Little Farmer
The Little Farmer is a favorite fall destination for many local families. Their caramel apple situation is part of the reason. You can bypass the awkward trying to figure out how to eat an apple on a stick covered in caramel by choosing a cut-up apple drenched in caramel and topped with your choice of their rotating toppings that include a reader favorite: candy-covered sunflower seeds.
