Now that it’s October you have no excuse, you simply must start carving your pumpkins and get into the Halloween spirit! Fall activities are incomplete without a visit to your local farm to pick a big, bright pumpkin for your porch decor or a delicious fall gourd-themed dish.

No two pumpkins are the same, the question is where to get the perfect pumpkin in our fine city? Here are a few of our faves to get you started on your hunt.
