The city has only begun to cool off, but local restaurants and shops have long been invaded by the fruits of fall. Pumpkin porters are on draft, butternut squash soups are abundant, and we bet you know at least one person on a steady diet of pumpkin spice lattes. Autumn is here, bringing with it jam-packed weekends of outside events, like Local First Arizona’s Certified Local Fall Festival. The fête à fall returns on Saturday, November 5, for a day of eating, drinking, and outdoor shopping.The small business celebration runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Margaret T. Hance Park, 200 East Moreland Street, and is free for the whole family. Sample fall flavors and learn more about the neighbors with booths from organizations like Celebrate Volunteers and Phoenix Urban Spaces — but maybe leave the sweater at home. See www.localfirstaz.com/fall-festival for a complete list of participants.
