Fall on the MarketplacePosted on September 22, 2014
It’s that time of year again- fall in Vermont! Say goodbye to summer and hello to brisk weather, apple picking, foliage and maple, maple, maple. The Church Street Marketplace remains a beautiful shopping and dining destination year round, but come experience all the seasonal fun we have to offer downtown this fall!
Start your day off the right way with a delicious Maple Latte from Uncommon Grounds. Almost too beautiful to drink, this seasonal beverage will be sure to put a little bounce in your step. Take it to go or stop and warm up inside the bustling café. Enjoy before work or as an afternoon pick me up!
It’s time to retire your flip-flops and shorts in favor of boots and jackets. Don’t worry, you can still be fashionable in the colder temperatures with the help of our amazing downtown stores! They're happy to help you update your wardrobe to transition from summer to fall.
Fur is huge this season. Stay cozy but cute in this June jacket paired over a cashmere sweater dress from Sail to Sable at Monelle Vermont. Have you seen their Instagram account? Follow this awesome women’s clothing store at @monellevermont. They post great outfit ideas every day!
When stomping through the leaves on your way to work, around town or out at night, be comfortable but stylish in a pair of Frye boots from Dear Lucy! They have the widest selection of boots in downtown Burlington. These rich but neutral colors will pair with any outfit this season and will become a staple in your closet year round.
For a unique spin on our favorite flavor of the season, visit Apple Mountain for some Maple Sprinkes! These delicious sprinkles are made by Green Mountain Goodness in Franklin, Vermont and taste great on top of oatmeal, yogurt or ice cream. Tourists and locals can both agree that this treat is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
A Le Creuset Dutch Oven will also become essential in your kitchen this fall. Their cookware is perfect for making soups, chili, casseroles and anything you and your family may crave on a cold autumn night. They are easy to use AND dishwasher safe. Choose one in a variety of autumn colors at Kiss the Cook.
End the evening with an Apple Pie cocktail from Halvorson’s Upstreet Café. This drink captures the essence of fall in every sip, made with Stoli vanilla, spiced cider, local hard cider, lemon, a cinnamon sugar rim and a cinnamon stick. Treat yourself to this delicious concoction that you’ll only find on the Top Block at Halvorson’s.
