Heading to a local farmers’ market is one of our all-time favorite fall activities! People often consider this one a summer outing but there are still a few months left to enjoy seasonal, locally grown food from a farmers’ market. Bring your pickings back, and get creative with apples, beets, leeks, parsnips, and mushrooms—all of which are best in the fall.
