PUMPKIN SPICE & EVERYTHING NICE
Liberty Village, fall is in full effect. The leaves are changing, the air smells like pumpkin spice and everyone is dressed in their favourite fall sweaters! In that spirit we’ve compiled some of our favourite things to do in Liberty Village during the fall season. There are so many ways to embrace this beautiful season, let’s not let it pass us by without enjoying it in in all its glory.
When we start to see pumpkins, gourds, and squash line our supermarket shelves and all things pumpkin spice show up in our favourite coffee shops, it almost makes the change from summer to fall officially official. With that said, when we think of fall, we almost instantly think about warm drinks, delicious food, and hearty cooking.
Some of our favourite places we like to go dressed in our coziest sweaters for a warm internal hug from our favourite fall lattes, drinks and treats are Brodflour, Tim Horton’s, Balzac’s, Starbucks, and Liberty Coffee Bar.
Tim Horton’s is going all out this fall season, offering pumpkin spice Timbits, lattes, and iced caps, they even added a creamy pumpkin spice muffin to their PSL lineup. And then there’s Balzac’s! They have added the Café Harvest to their menu, which is so delicious, they even make a kid friendly version – holding the espresso of course! Then there’s Starbucks, the brand that pretty much made the PSL a season staple, we’re lucky in Liberty Village to have two locations to choose from, we can grab one while we do our groceries at Metro and one after we’ve finished our workout or visit to the LCBO.
The warm drinks and coffee shop treats are just as much a tradition as staying in and cooking up warm, comforting, hearty meals. One of the fun things about the changing of the seasons (other than the fashion & PSLs) is also changing up our go to meals to incorporate all the amazing local fresh fall produce. Between Organic Garage’s offering of organic squash, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes and Bulk Barn’s offering of flours, spices, baking supplies and more, our go to fall recipes and creativity in the kitchen this season are endless. Also FYI, in case you didn’t know, you can place your Bulk Barn orders on their website ahead of time for quick and easy pick up! If you’re looking for some recipe inspiration Metro has lots of fall inspired dishes and recipes on their website to get creative juices going.
Beyond all the eating and the indulgent foods, we also need to remember to take care of our physical and mental health. Be sure to make sure you’re getting all your nutrient and vitamin intake and that you are also getting lots of rest. With the cooler weather also comes flu season. This year, it’s more important than ever to make sure we keep our minds and bodies strong and healthy. The Nutrition House staff is incredibly knowledgeable and always happy to help if you’re looking to purchase supplements or teas to naturally boost your immune system.
Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year, be sure to get outside and enjoy some beautiful fall days, remind yourself to take walks often, take in the beautiful fall colours, and enjoy the changing of the seasons, this will do wonders for both your physical and mental well-being.
Fall lattes, cooking, and walks around the neighborhood are just some of the ways we like to celebrate this beautiful season. Be sure to tag @libertyvillagebia in your fall themed posts and show us how you celebrate fall in LV!
