Top Picks for Fall Family Fun

If the scent of pumpkin spice has you bombarding google for the nearest corn maze, or you are simply looking for something fun to do on the weekend with your kiddos, let this post be your guide to fall family fun in the 'Shwa.

Top Pick for the Family: Linton's Farm Market

Located at 571 Raglan Rd. E., this family-friendly venue has all of your favorite fall activities packed into one. While you peruse the vast array of farm fresh fruit and vegetables at the market, your kids can entertain themselves in the children's play area for only $5/child.

Once the kids have raced around the 'Farmer 500' tricycle course, tried their hand at corn bowling, and brought home a win at the rubber duckie races, be sure to take them out to the pick-your-own pumpkin patch to choose the perfect pumpkin for your porch.

Top Pick for Shopping Local: White Feather Country Store

You have not tasted an apple fritter until you have tasted the White Feather Country Store apple fritter! Oh, and did I mention they also have cherry and maple glazed fritters too? If fritters alone aren't enough to convince you to take the short drive up Simcoe St. N. for a visit, you may also want to pay them a visit to take a selfie in the $5 sunflower maze, or browse the enormous country store!
