October is here and the weather is feeling like fall! We’ve rounded up several North Shore spots to find pumpkins, whether you’re planning a family outing to select the perfect one or just a quick stop.

Appleton Farms: Visit the The Appleton Farm Store at the CSA Barn to select a jack-o-lantern pumpkin or white sugar pumpkins. You can also order online for in-store pick-up. Open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 am to 6pm and Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm. 209 County Road, Ipswich.

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 from 9 am to 6 pm. 1370 Turnpike Street, North Andover.

Brooksby Farm: Stop by the Pumpkin Yard to snag a pumpkin of any size, then complete your visit with a treat from the Farm Store or Donut Hut. Call for hours. 54 Felton Street, Peabody.

Cider Hill Farm: Grab your farmhouse pumpkins, corn husks, scarecrows and assorted mums to get in the fall spirit. These are available to shop daily, from 8 am to 6 pm, at the Farm Stand. 45 Fern Avenue, Amesbury.
