Eating Your Way Through Le Marche ~ October 2010

Fall is here! Crisp days, cools nights, the colors are changing & the leaves are falling - I love autumn!

It is also harvest season & there are plenty of local festivals to keep your belly full! Make a weekend or even better a week of it! Our agriturismo is within an hours drive to all these festivals & is the perfect 'home base.'

All the fall photos were taken at our place La Tavola Marche Agriturismo & along our road just this week!
