Savor Autumn at Market

This Saturday marks the Autumnal Equinox! The appearance of gourds, dried bouquets, and fall veggies makes this fact undeniable and in our opinion very exciting. Just in case you haven't yet sipped some apple cider and gazed upon a dried bouquet, here are some ways to get cozy with fall the market way!

There are still many fresh flower bouquets at market featuring some of our favorite flowers (Sunflowers! Dahlias! Celosia!), but many vendors have dried or everlasting bouquets in vibrant or earthy hues as well. Pick up dried strawflower and globe amaranth bouquets. If you aren't looking for bouquets for your desk or table but have some porch or outdoor space you'd like to beautify, you can find mums in golden yellows and vibrant purples as well as hardy hibiscus at market.
