Pumpkin Spice + Everything Nice at the Downtown Farmers’ Market

National Pumpkin Spice Day

September 29, 2022

Every Saturday at The Market is an opportunity to find local seasonal offerings from May through October, but during fall, the urge to purchase autumn goods is strong. This Saturday, Oct. 1, not only does the countdown to Halloween begin, but people across the country will celebrate National Pumpkin Spice Day, a day to find the seasonings that scream fall – including cinnamon, clove, ginger and nutmeg. Here are a few booths to stop by to find pumpkin spice goods:
