Is a pumpkin the most iconic seasonal vegetable of all time? We’d argue yes — name another vegetable used in both pies + as a decorative centerpiece, we’ll wait.
In honor of these humble orange orbs, we are rounding up three local pumpkin patches + farms for your next fall project — whether that’s baking or carving.
And before you head out, grab a pumpkin spice drink from one of these local spots.
