Where to Find Pumpkins in Marin

September 20, 2023

Marin’s agricultural community is in peak harvest season, with golden hillsides and swelling pumpkin patches as the fall months have arrived. 

With that in mind, we wanted to bring you the latest on where to get out on the land, enjoy the season’s harvest, partake in spooky fall events, and pick up your home’s decorative-gourd-season decor. 

Get out in nature to appreciate the the labors from months (and years) of land stewardship and tending by Marin’s agriculturalists.

Keep in mind that hours, fees, COVID restrictions, and event details may change, so please confirm with each of the vendors and event hosts below before venturing out for a day of fun on the land.
