By: D. Rock,

If shopping tops your list of fun things to do while enjoying local wineries, then this upcoming weekend you are going to have such a great time exploring the Mahoning County region.

Start your day of shopping by looking for that unique treasure at the Youngstown “Market For Makers” flea. It’s the last flea for the 2017 season!

Then it’s off to a unique fall harvest event at The Valley Marketplace. There you can explore the indoor Amish market, watch the Amish make fry pies and other fall treats, as well as enjoy a BBQ.

A brand new Pumpkin Pavilion and Gift Market is now awaiting you at White House Fruit Farms.  While there don’t forget to sample those famous blueberry doughnuts! Did I mention you may want to bring a cooler?

Can’t wait for the holiday season?  Then set your navigation towards Columbiana, OH.  There you will find the “Old Fashioned Christmas in the Woods” event. “Each crafts person will be demonstrating their unique skills and creating hand-crafted holiday gift items right before your eyes.”

After a long day of shopping, it’s time to sit back, listen to a little music and enjoy sampling the various wines at any one of the Ohio wineries located around the area.
