Where To Pick Pumpkins Locally This Fall

Grab your signature pumpkin around the Hudson Valley before Halloween hits.

On the heels of September's apple picking tradition comes another Hudson Valley ritual—grabbing pumpkins from a local patch for carving, decorating or eating.

You won't have to travel far this month. Patch has your go-to, local spots to nab the iconic fall treat.
