Check out your local farmer's market to find some veggies, decorative fall gourds/pumpkins, breads, plants/bouquets, and many other foods and items you've never seen before, while helping your local farmers/economy. If you already go to a farmer's market in your city, check out a different one nearby. You'd be surprised what you can find between different vendors!
