October isn’t just the peak season for pumpkin-spiced everything, it's also harvest season for many fruits and vegetables. Use the local deals you find on Flipp to update and inspire new recipes for the season. Take advantage of Columbus Day sales on fall fashion- items you can still wear for months.

Here’s our full list of deals to keep an eye out for:


California walnuts are at their peak in October and November. You’ll see great deals on bulk bags at the supermarket, just in time for the holiday nutcracker! Store them in the fridge or freezer.

Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes

Peak season begins when the weather cools down so look for specials in your weekly grocery store flyers.


Now’s the time to load up on pears! Bosc and Comice varieties are plentiful and prices drop in the fall.


It’s National Apple Month and the end of the autumn harvest for most varieties. Buy a bushel and bake some apple pies to freeze for the holidays.

Sweaters, hoodies and jeans

Columbus Day weekend sales are all about fall clothing so you can update fall and winter wardrobes. Stores are looking to clear out what’s left after the back-to-school rush.

Smoke alarms

Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 5 this year and it’s a good reminder to replace your smoke alarm or put fresh batteries in, which you might find on sale as well.
