HAGERSTOWN - Though sunshine and warm temperatures this weekend felt like an extension of summer, Sunday ushered in autumn.
Wendy and Katie Saylor celebrated the change in seasons this weekend with their annual fall ritual - a stop at a local farmers market.
"We wanted mums and apples and pumpkins," Wendy Saylor said.
Seasons officially changed Sunday just after 5 a.m., an Accuweather meteorologist said.
Apples and chrysanthemums are the most popular fall farm-fresh items at Lewis Orchards and Farm Market near Smithsburg, said Valerie Sumner. Sumner and Tina Creamer quickly rang up customers and replenished produce baskets Sunday afternoon.
"Peaches are over now. We have several varieties of apples and pears and fresh apple cider," said Shirley Lewis. On an average weekend day in the fall, her business receives a couple hundred visitors, Lewis said.
