Despite unseasonably warm weather, it’s officially fall in the District. From pumpkin-lined houses in Georgetown to that mile-long line at Gelbucks, fall has become synonymous with anything and everything pumpkin. For pumpkin enthusiasts and those just hopping on the pumpkin bandwagon, here’s a list of nine can’t-miss pumpkin items, courtesy of Trader Joe’s.
