Pumpkins: we love them. We love how they look, what they taste like and what they represent. They usher us into the holidays: up go those friendly (sometimes freaky) jack-o’-lanterns, and hand-turkey crafts follow, only to be replaced by December’s Christmas trees and snowmen. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s savor the here and now: it’s pumpkin season!
The calendar states that fall begins on September 22nd, but let’s be real: it actually starts when Trader Joe’s unveils their pumpkin goodies. This place is one-stop shopping for those who crave that distinct, savory taste. From tortilla chips to chai-tea latte mix, to raviolis, to ice cream, it’s a pumpkin-loving foodie’s paradise. Visit their site to find the store nearest you.
Create your own pumpkin world with a miniature fairy garden. Even the most wicked of witches would be happy to hang her hat in this charming craft from our partner, Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts. Check it out here.
When it comes to buying your wares: head to the most fun place possible: a pumpkin patch! Bustling with busy shoppers, excited children and—if you’re lucky—tractors offering hayrides, your local pumpkin patch is the ultimate fall destination. Check out PumpkinPatchesAndMore.com for a list of locations in every state!
