The leaves are changing, PSLs are brewing and apples are ripe for the picking. It's also the time for Dilworth Park's Octoberfest and Made in Philadelphia Fall Market.

Adjacent to City Hall, step into a whirlwind of pumpkins, hay bales and shucks of corn. Grab a spiked cider at the beer garden, play classic games and shop among local vendors.

The market started on Friday, but it will be functioning all weekend long. Here are seven booths that you'll definitely want to check out while there. 

1. S'mores Pops
