Fall Guide

Pumpkins Galore

Find the perfect pumpkin at any of the state’s 24 patches

Posted

Fall is the only season associated with its own vegetable: the plump, orange pumpkin. It has most recently infiltrated your local coffee shop lattes and seasonal candle scents – did someone say pumpkin spice? – but nothing beats the nostalgic tradition of pumpkin picking.

It was a hallmark of your autumns as a kid, and after so many years, you’re probably an expert. You’ll wander the rows of ready-to-pick pumpkins with the critical eye of a connoisseur, scanning the variety of shapes and sizes for the one. Maybe it’s tall and skinny, or squat and wide, but it’ll make the perfect addition to your front stoop. And you won’t be alone, as dozens of pumpkin pickers meander the patch with you, each scoping for what might be considered the season’s prize trophy. Whether you pick it, paint it, or carve it, this popular gourd is an essential part of fall in Rhode Island. Thankfully, our state has no shortage of places to seek that perfect pumpkin – with dozens of farms, orchards, and gardens around the state prepping their patches, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.
