Pumpkins

2018 Pumpkin Patch Information  (also see our Wholesale information)

2018 Pumpkin Season is winding down.

 

The field for pick your own pumpkins has closed for the 2018 season.  There are still  plenty of pumpkins available in the barns behind the Market.  There are lots of pumpkins for you to pick from the bins in the barn.  Stroll through the flower beds behind the Market and check out all the Jack O Lanterns, Heirlooms Pumpkins, Mini Pumpkins, Gourds, and Winter Squash! 

Pumpkins are also available in the barns by the Greenhouse behind the Market.   Look for them at the Market.  All pumpkins are $.75/lb.  Mini pumpkins and gourds are $1 each.  Winter Squash is $1/lb.  Or you can get a wheelbarrow load for $85.  You can mix and match what goes in your wheelbarrow!  Big pumpkins, little pumpkins, heirloom pumpkins, mini pumpkins, gourds, and winter squash.  You are welcome to pile the wheelbarrow up, but you must be able to get it to the counter in the Market and your vehicle without the pumpkins falling off and without someone holding them on the wheelbarrow.

Our Annual Taste of the Market is Saturday October 6th.  Come see! Come learn! Come taste the difference!  Buy Fresh! Buy Local!
