The Giant Pumpkins Have Arrived!
October festivities at your local farmers' market are about to begin! The Giant Pumpkins have arrived, just in time for you to guess their weight! Greg Pursley and Jorge Vega, PCFMA Regional Managers, dragged these superior squash specimens to the warehouse - all the way from Bautista Ranch in Stockton! What an amazing feat of strength! Throughout the month of October - and with Halloween just around the corner - these pumpkins will be making their appearance in all their orange glory. They will hold pride of place at different markets on various market days, so you must check with your market manager to see when they will appear.
Along with the arrival of these beauties, markets will have costume contests, pumpkin giveaways, and other fall arts and crafts. You could win a pumpkin and other great prizes for the myriad of contests being held. Pumpkins, gourds, and other winter squash will also be available from various farmers. Be sure to pick up several to decorate for the holiday! Happy Fall! See you at the market!
