Fall is officially here! It’s time to stock up on pumpkins and enjoy the final days at farmers markets before they’re gone for the year.

Pumpkin patches

There are many wonderful, family-owned spots in the Mother Lode for Jack-o’-lantern shopping and pumpkin photo ops. Hilltop Market in San Andreas, Trifilo Garden Center in Murphys and Dodasa Ranch in Burson are just a few.


Here’s a recent Enterprise article spotlighting these local pumpkin patches.
