It’s that time of year again. Time for your taste buds to dance with the arrival of the SweeTango apple to the marketplace. This page is your source for where to find this great apple this year. I will update it as much as I can, as I hear of more and more places that have the apple available. Please keep in mind this list is only listing places that are expected to have them. I can’t guarantee exact availability, which is why it’s best to call before you go.

Farms that belong to the Next Big Thing Growers’ Co-op will have them available at their farm market, stands, and farmer’s markets. The grocery stores will be supplied by 3 main sources. Stemilt supplies them to stores that are west of the Rocky Mountains. Pepin Heights supplies them to the Midwest. Fowler Farms serves the East Coast. There is also a source that ships in Canada. Walmart stores are expected to receive shipments this year, but that may only include select locations.

    Had sweet tangos from hyvee columbia mo and they were fabulous. Then tried them from walmart and they were not good at all! Not sure why, and am usually not a walmart shopper anyway.

    I am pretty sure that the apples you got were from two different sources. I have had them from 3 different states now and haven’t had any that weren’t up to par. Must be Walmart’s fault somehow. I don’t shop at Walmart.

    Looking to buy SweeTangos in central Massachusetts as soon as they are available. I’m told Wegman’s MAY have them (Wegman stores in NY do, apparently.) Can you tell me where and when they will be available here? Thanks so much!

    I will let you know as soon as I have that information.

    Looking for these delicious apples in Salem, OR for my dad and in the greater SF bay area in CA for me. Discovered them on a trip to New England with my parents last fall, fabulous apples!! Help would be appreciated.

    I don’t have any information yet on these exact locations. The harvest is just under way, so soon I should have info on stores. They were a lot of growers in Washington, but none that I know of in Oregon or California. I am pretty sure you will be able to give them in both areas. I will let you know when I know.

    I can confirm that Wegman stores will receive SweeTango this year. I don’t have exact dates, but the shipping has begun. So contact your local store to find out more.
