There are a number of things we look forward to each fall. Rob and I both love driving up to the mountains near our home at any time of year, but the drive is especially beautiful in the fall.
One place we enjoy visiting is Flat Rock, NC. It is a very small village but there are a number of quaint little shops and places to visit and get something to eat. This summer when we were up visiting the Carl Sandburg home we learned about a farmer's market that is held from 3-6 on Thursday afternoons behind the row of colorful little shops in Flat Rock. The market will be open through the 28th of October. We drove up there on a recent Thursday and arrived shortly before three and were able to peruse the farmer's stands and enjoy the live banjo music.
We bought a couple of produce items and shared a delicious cranberry apricot scone from the Flat Rock Village Bakery before heading down the road to purchase some fabric at the quilt shop.
We even went back through Flat Rock later in the day so we could eat supper at Hubba Hubba Smokehouse. It's another one of our favorites up there.
My Quilt Shoppe is further down the road from Flat Rock just into Hendersonville. It's a nice little shop that you might want to check out if you are a quilter.
Another of our favorites is Lyda Farms. We have been going up there for many years and enjoy their apples, cabbages, squash, and other vegetables and decorative gourds and Indian corn. We learned this week that Lyda Farms is having an apple tasting event which will include barbecue this weekend--October 2nd and 3rd from 9 AM until 3 PM. For more information call 828-685-3459. If you live in the Greenville area you might want to check it out.
I got this bittersweet wreath the last time we were up there:
We are truly blessed to live so close to the mountains.
Where are some of your favorite places to visit in the fall?
