Weekend Market Picks September 26 & 27, 2015: Apple Season!
Well, it’s been a big week in the city, #AmIRight? It’s almost October too, so it’s funny that it feels like mid-July, only with pumpkins. So go out and enjoy the first signs of cool, fresh weather ahead this weekend!
And it’s time to start the transition from peaches to apples, like these beautiful galas from Samascott Orchards! Luckily, there’s still time to enjoy both in the farmers markets.
I’ll be posting live from Crafty Bastards in DC! Who else is going to be there?!
