Indulge in warm and hearty food

It’s comfort food season.  Time for the warm and hearty food that we love to make its reappearance. If you haven’t already hopped on the d’Lish by Tish soup train, now is the time. They post their daily soup in their Instagram stories and have set up the cutest makeshift drive-through for pickup orders! Facebook/ Instagram

Speaking of comfort food, I can’t say this enough: Hearth Restaurant’s wild and cultivated mushrooms with melty cheese may be the most perfect comfort food there is. Hearth was named one of the top 100 restaurants in Canada this year and their reservations fill up fast. But lucky for all of us, you can get the mushrooms for takeout! Facebook/Instagram

Shop at artisan markets

It’s beginning to look a lot like market season! Who doesn’t love starting their holiday shopping in October at amazing artisan markets?  During the first two weekends of October, check out Street Stall Saturdays. They are set up from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Market Square of River landing and boast 45+ vendors.  Facebook/Instagram

Head to the great outdoors

Get outside and enjoy the crisp autumn air. Heck, bring the kids! The Berry Barn is hosting a Straw Bale Maze. It is in their greenhouse and only cost two dollars per trip! Facebook/Instagram

Black Fox does October right with their u-pick pumpkin patch! Pumpkins cost between five and fifteen dollars each. Once out at the farm, make sure you treat yourself to an amazing cocktail or pick up some gin to take home. And who doesn’t like gin? Facebook/Instagram

Halloween means Hocus Pocus

If you are up for a little Halloween nostalgia, The Roxy Theatre is screening the 1993 classic Halloween movie, Hocus Pocus. The movie will be aired twice as matinees on October 10 and 11. The movie is rated PG and the event is open to all ages. Facebook/Instagram
