Nothing says fall like a day spent apple picking in an orchard near Montreal. Rather than pick this crop from the best farmers’ markets in Montreal, consider that the city is surrounded by u-pick orchards on all sides, with most offering at least a dozen different apple varieties to choose from in addition to pears, plums and pumpkins in the mix. While apple picking can be a great family activity, a lot of these spots also produce a selection of ciders, so it makes for a great day trip from Montreal no matter who you are. Remember that apple picking season also means peak freshness, so keep an eye out for apples on the menus of the best bakeries and best restaurants in Montreal.
