Apple Day @ Eli’s Cheesecake in celebration of the great Apple Harvest by Nichols Orchards

At Eli’s Cheesecake, we are fortunate to host a Thursday Farmers Market in our parking lot from mid-June through the end of August. Each week, Nichols Farms & Orchards brings us a most impressive assortment of locally grown vegetables and fruits. Today was a most special day as this is the peak of the apple season–with over 50 varieties available at the Market.

In celebration of the Apple Harvest, Eli’s distributed apples to all associates—in recognition of the wonderful local agriculture in Illinois and neighboring states.
