There's something so special about fall. The days are still pretty warm, but you can put on a cozy oversized sweater at night. Your wardrobe shifts from vibrant colors to more muted jewel tones and darker neutrals. The air gets crisper, and it becomes socially acceptable to wear beanies and felt hats again. And, of course, you have farmers' markets to look forward to. The markets are stocked with pumpkins, sunflowers, apple cider, honey, and all the cheeses you can sample, so you're definitely going to need captions for fall markets for your next visit.
Farmers' markets are not only a way to make your pantry and fridge a little more colorful — with some seriously fresh product, no less — but they're also a wonderful way to spend your weekend. You get to walk around, try samples of the produce and farm goods, and maybe even check out work from local artisans. You can go by yourself for a fun day on your own, or you can bring a friend (or your whole crew, for that matter) to experience it with.
Regardless of how you embrace this adventure, make sure you add a trip to a fall market to the top of your list for the season. You're bound to have a gourd-geously a-maize-ing time.
