There’s nothing like savoring the brisk autumn air while shopping from Westchester-area artisans at the region’s most colorful craft fairs.

What is it about autumn in Westchester that makes you want to get outside and dig into all things fall? While apple picking and arts celebrations are hallmarks of the season, few things are quite as special as the local craft fairs that pop up when the leaves begin to fall.

With the temperatures dropping and the sweet scents of apples and cinnamon filling the air, there’s no time like the present to support local at Westchester County’s fall craft fairs. So throw on a sweater (‘tis the season, after all), grab your reusable bags, and hit the road. It’s time to get crafty!
