You know what they say about doctors and apples, right? Well, you can get your daily fix of crunchy fruit goodness without leaving the Loop on Thursday, as Chicago's Downtown Farmstand (66 E.Randolph) is celebrating its one-year anniversary by offering free apples all day long (the market is open from 11 a.m.-7 p.m.), according to The Stew.

While you're at the farmstand, we suggest you pick up a whole bag of locally sourced apples -- after all, you've gotta practice for the upcoming Bucktown Apple Pie Contest, which goes down Sunday, October 18 at Holstein Park (2200 N. Oakley) from 2-5 p.m. The event costs $15 to enter; if you're not the baking type, you can visit for free (each slice will cost ya, though). Just remember, that whole "apple a day" thing doesn't apply to pies.
