If Fall is your favorite season, you know that you have to run (not walk) to enjoy all the Fall eats and treats before they are gone. Especially in Pittsburgh, Fall tends to be particularly short, so make sure to enjoy all of the pumpkin, turkey, and apple cider donuts before it’s Christmas time in the city.
Mad Mex Gobblerito
The infamous burrito from Mad Mex only comes around this time of year. If you love all the Thanksgiving food, then why not eat it in burrito form with an apple cider margarita on the side. Celebrate the great feast holiday more than once. Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes. What more could you ask for?
Pumpkin Beer and Hard Apple Cider
Pumpkin beer and seasonal hard cider drinks are in season, but only for a short time. Get your pumpkin beer fix at Southern Tier Brewing Company, Mike's beer bar, or Bierport to grab and go. Stock upon your favorites because these fly off the shelves and are stopped in production shortly after starting to prepare for winter brews. Also, check out Pittsburgh’s own hard cider house Arsenal Cider in one of their many locations.
Farmer’s Market Treats
With only a few weekends of nice Fall weather, you need to capitalize on the local farmer’s markets. Soergelsor Trax Farms are a great place to start and stock up on your fall favorites, including apple cider donuts, kettle corn, and all of the pumpkin baked goods. Take some pumpkins to-go to make homemade pie and savory pumpkin seeds for snacking.
Brusters Seasonal Flavors
Pittsburgh’s hometown ice cream powerhouse Bruster’s has all your seasonal favorites covered. There are so many options that you might have to visit more than once in Fall so you can try them all before they are gone. Try flavors like caramel apple and pumpkin cheesecake.
You can find pumpkin-flavored coffee almost anywhere this time of year, but it won't last long! If you like to make your own, check out Nicholas Coffee and Tea in Market Square where you have endless Fall-flavored coffee possibilities. Some of our favorite picks are apple cinnamon streusel and of course, pumpkin spice!
