It is available here all year, but I also live within a 30 min drive of 5 orchards. I think youll find that most of your stores cider came from the east coast. Theres an exeptional orchard in newcomerstown, ohio if you can find theres get it.

If your worried about price try looking at discount stores like aldis and save alot. It should be quite a bit cheaper.

You can even make decent "cider" from concentrate. I find the key to using juce and concentrate is to
1 use another fruit with it broken down with pectic enzyme. this will replace some of the body. My usual favorite is either strawberrys or crush bing cherries
2 let it sit on the lees for a bit. This increases malolactic fermentation [the breakdown of certain acids]. It will give you a more cidery bite
P1 Strawberry bannna melomel
p2 mixed berry cyser
p3 lemon ginger melomel
2 gallon fermenting kit is OTW!!!

This time of year, you're more likely to get cider that has no preservatives. If you get it later in the year, be extra careful to make sure it has no potassium sorbate, BHT, etc.

Just bought 5 gallons of juice to "convert" to apfelwein for the first time. Been using mead for a few years for warp speed blitz. Apfelwein will have to convince me it is better , tho I look fwd to the test.
