It’s that time of year again… The air changes, the leaves begin to turn, and there is a shift from the energy that was summer. Fall is here…time for sweaters and pumpkin spice and comfort food. Before we know it, the Holidays will be here!
But wait…Not so fast, right? It’s nice to slow down and take in all that September & October offer. The fall season conjures up all sorts of nostalgia for many people and these are great months for weekend outings with the family. Montgomery County is abundant with beautiful farm stands, orchards, scenic hikes and lovely vineyards all within a very short drive.
Apple picking (and eating) is a favorite thing to do this time of year. There are also great fresh vegetables, local honey and baked goodies available this time of year at many of the orchards where you can pick apples.
Plan an outing with your family & friends to one of these local places. Take lots of pictures, have fun and when you’re headed back from a full day of fun call ahead, order online or stop by The Market and we’ll have everything you need for dinner right here.
