The weather has turned and it’s time to indulge in the incredible flavors of fall; for many of us that means lots and lots of pumpkin. Luckily, you don’t have to roam out of Grays Harbor to find pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread, and anything else you can think of that may taste better with a bit of that flavorful fruit (yup, that’s right, pumpkins are technically fruits…and members of the gourd family, not squash!) So, hop into your car and drive just a short distance to one, or all, of these local Grays Harbor bakeries and coffeehouses to sample the flavors of the season.
