Must be honest, I am not looking forward to summer coming to an end in Michigan. Before you know it we will be celebrating Halloween. Michigan is a great state in the fall though, with all the beautiful colors and cooler days.

We need to get out taste buds ready and to fully appreciate Michigan's fall foods and flavors, For some of those, we go to farms, vineyards, farmers' markets, and restaurants. Plus many working farms invite visitors to enjoy their harvest which has many items for sale. Many chefs will also be inviting and creating dishes for the new season in many restaurants.
