October is here and fall is in full swing! You can get a pumpkin at most local grocery stores, but it’s often more fun to pick your own or head to a farm stand for pumpkins and apple cider donuts. We’ve rounded up several local places to find pumpkins, whether you want to make an afternoon out of selecting the perfect one or just score a really good deal!
Boston Hill Farm: Stop by the store and grab a red wagon to pull out to the field and pick your own pumpkin. Field is open daily in the fall. 1370 Turnpike Street, North Andover.
Brooksby Farm: After picking your own apples stop by the Pumpkin Yard to snag a pumpkin of any size. 54 Felton Street, Peabody.
Costco: If you’re a member you can get a great deal on large pumpkins. These are the cheapest prices I’ve seen! 111 Newbury Street, Danvers.
Connors Farm: Pick you own pumpkin after spending a day at the farm enjoying the cow train, corn maze and apple cannons…just to name a few of the family-friendly attractions. 30 Valley Road, Danvers.
Ingaldsby Farm: Here you’ll find a variety of pumpkins and gourds for sale at the farm stand and you’ll also be able to pick your own pumpkins on select weekends. 14 Washington Street, West Boxford.
Kane’s Flower World: Kane’s is a regular stop for our family for both mums and pumpkins in the fall. Huge selection of both! 64 Andover Street, Danvers.
Smolak Farms: Pumpkins and mums are available at the farm stand daily, and the pumpkin patch is open for you to pick your own on weekends beginning in mid-September. 315 South Bradford Street, North Andover.
Tendercrop Farm: Pumpkins, fresh fruit, vegetables, and gorgeous sunflowers can be found at this farm stand. 93 Main Street, Wenham.
Trader Joe’s: I can never resist the small pumpkins they stock outside. And while you’re there you can stock up on one of the many pumpkin flavored goodies they offer for the season. Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn, yum! 300 Andover Street, Peabody.
