GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- When summer arrives and the weather warms up many start thinking about fruits, veggies and trips to the farmer's market. A few months later as days get shorter and leaves start to turn, the thoughts often switch to apple orchards and pumpkin patches.

But why not get the best of both worlds?

The Fulton Street Farmers Market in Grand Rapids is filled with great fall flavors - along with summer favorites that are still in season. Farmer John Platte is one of the apple vendors at the market, and says shoppers don't go for traditional Red Delicious apples, instead choosing varieties like  Mollie Delicious, Snow Sweet, Candy Crisp, Cameo, and Wolf River.

There are just about as many types of pumpkins and gourds, and their names are just as unique: fairytale (green,) Cinderella (orange,) goosebump (bumpy,) flat white boer (white.) Some will taste great in a pie, while others make a fantastic display on the front porch.

Fulton Street Farmers Market is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday from 8am-3pm.
