Autumn officially started on Wednesday, September 22, although store shelves and local bakeries have had products welcoming the season for some time already. With fall’s arrival comes sweater weather, changing foliage, stunning vistas, and seasonal activities such as visiting a pumpkin patch and farmers’ markets.
