Eastern Market

Walking under the fairy lights of Eastern Market around any holiday is sure to bring you festive feelings. From their fresh produce to harvest and homemade soup, you can go home with a quality basket. Perhaps you can pick up some home decorations like some pumpkins for carving. And if you are feeling hungry on your way out, be sure to grab lunch at a food truck or pick up a snack of apple cider and donuts.


Trader Joes
Although Trader Joes is there year-round, it is still a staple spot to visit when the leaves start to change. Trader Joes has everything you might need to fill your house with festivity. From their decorative squash to their pumpkin candles, their selection is unmatched.

An anticipated tradition known everywhere is the pumpkin spice latte. You can always count on Starbucks to deliver the perfect drink for a chilly fall day. Starbucks doesn’t just offer the pumpkin spice latte, but they also have a large selection of fall drinks from the apple crisp macchiato to the cinnamon chai latte. The next time you are walking through the village on a chilly fall day, make sure you swing into Starbucks and grab yourself a festive drink.
