Fall has been slowly tiptoeing its way through Eugene this October. One can see it in the changing of the leaves throughout campus, by the sudden need to cozy up with a favorite scarf before braving the crisp outdoors, and by that Starbucks sign sitting on the corner of 13th and Alder, announcing that the ever-so famous pumpkin spice latte is back in action.

 

Of late, I find myself cozying up with friends under a blanket for late night movies, escaping the rainy outdoors. My thoughts often drift to my mom’s homemade apple cider or my dad’s famous chocolate-chip pumpkin bread, both of which appear in the kitchen every year at my childhood home during the fall season. 

                                               

If you are looking to embrace everything these next few fall months has to offer, Eugene’s Farmers Markets are the places to explore. Whether it be finding pumpkin decor for your porch, trying out newly harvested vegetables, or finding the perfect ingredients to recreate those childhood fall goodies, the Farmers Market can provide it all. Here are just a few of the markets within Lane County and what they could offer you this cozy holiday season.
