The Real Apple Store

“If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe.”
— Carl Sagan

As part of the Apple Day festivities, Borough Market set up one of the cleverest display exhibits I’ve seen in a while. Come and step into the REAL Apple Store!

Now that’s just cheeky. The set up was made to deliberately mimic Apple Inc, down to the blue shirts of the display minders.

But rather than digital and electronics, the display was of 1000 varieties of apples, one for every year of Borough Market’s existence.

This apparently is the oldest recorded variety of apple in Britain, and it’s still around.

We loved it. It was cute and clever and fun!

  1. What a clever idea! 🙂 I love making things with apples at this time of year. I recently got an amazing peeler/corer/slicer machine: it takes all the tedious work out of making apple pies, crumbles and applesauce!

    1. So clever. I know precisely what sort of kitchen tool you’re describing…and I lament my utter lack of kitchen to justify having one.
