Fall Things To Do
The heat of summer breaks for cooler weather and crisp evenings. The fall is harvest time, a time to gather the fruits of the landscape and to gather together with friends and families for inspiring food, arts, and events. If you’re planning a visit, don't miss these fabulous fall things to do in Spokane!
Fall Feels at Green Bluff
Fall is all about the harvest, and there’s no better place to indulge in fall festivities than at Green Bluff Growers. Green Bluff is a growers association of more than 30 family farms (plus nearly 30 more artisan vendors and shops) situated in 12 square miles just north of Spokane. Green Bluff invites the public to visit, pick their own produce, and buy farm-fresh, seasonal foods on weekends and special events year-round.
Food & Drink at Green Bluff
After picking your own apples or choosing a pumpkin, stop by one of Green Bluff’s many restaurants. The Orchard Cafe at Walter's Fruit Ranch is open 9 am - 6 pm daily and serves all-day breakfast, hot or cold sandwiches, and coffee. Don't miss the Bistro and Deli at High Country Orchard features produce grown on and around the Bluff, additive-free meats, fresh baked goods, old-fashioned ice cream floats, and a coffee bar to boot! Another eatery up on the Bluff is the Country Kitchen at the Harvest House. With daily specials, homemade soups, specialty sandwiches, and an outdoor patio with views of Mt. Spokane, this is a great option to take a break from Fall festivities. And you won’t want to miss Country Kitchen’s pumpkin donuts on the weekends, they're always a Fall highlight.
Find The Perfect Pumpkin
You can’t plan a great Halloween without a great pumpkin. Bring the family to Green Bluff where you will find pumpkin patches as far as the eye can see, ripe for the picking. Before you set off for home to carve up your jack o’ lantern, get lost in the corn maze or hop aboard a traditional hayride.
