Local Farms

Many local farms—both large and small—grow pumpkins to sell in the fall, and you can quickly find what’s around you by Googling “farms near me.” Not only is this a great way to support your community and its businesses, but many farms offer a variety of fun seasonal activities, such as hay rides and corn mazes, as well as delicious treats to snack on.

Pumpkin Patches

Once September rolls around, chances are that pumpkin patches will start springing up left and right. Sometimes they’re associated with local farms, but others might be stand-alone features. Either way, they’re a great local source of fresh pumpkins, and many offer pick-your-own, which is always fun for families.

Grocery Stores

Many grocery stores bring in pumpkins by the truckload during the autumn season, and you’ll often find large bins of pumpkins to sort through by the entrance or in the produce section. The pumpkins might not be as fresh as the ones you get from local farms, but they’re still great for carving or cooking.

Farmers Markets

Your local farmers market is probably winding down in the fall (unless it’s year-round), but if you stop by during its last few weeks, chances are there will be lots of pumpkins and gourds. Plus, you can get your hands on some delicious fall produce, like apples, cranberries and figs.

Your local Lowe’s will likely have plenty of pumpkins in their garden center throughout the fall season. You’ll  have to buy them in-store, as they’re not available for shipping. While you’re there, you can pick up other fall decor.

You can often score great deals on pumpkins at your local Costco or other warehouse-style retailer. Just keep in mind that these stores typically require a membership, and there’s no guarantee that certain products will be available at a specific location.

Walmart is another big-box retailer that stocks up on pumpkins during the fall. Their jumbo pumpkins are ideal for holiday displays, carving and cooking, but you do have to buy them in-store.
