Default Pumpkins...where to buy?

Does anyone know of a good place to buy pumpkins in either Knoxville, Sevierville, Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg? I need to buy a bunch for my upcoming wedding and am unfamiliar with these areas. Please help.

Yep, Lowes, Home Depot and believe it or not Wal Mart has tons of them.. at least the one on Clinton Hwy does and they are pretty cheap too.
Congrads on your wedding.. I think Fall weddings are awesome!

You'll find pumpkin patches and corn mazes starting to open. This one is in Sevierville:
Orchard in Sevierville, TN - Mountain View Orchard, We sell Apples, Pumpkins, Winter Squash, Sweet Potatoes, and More!
I'd suggest calling Mountain View and telling them what you want and asking for help putting it together.
If they can't help you, there are plenty of other pumpkin patches:
Pick Tennessee Products
In Knoxville, Messiah Lutheran Church on Kingston Pike sells pumpkins every year with the funds going to various charities including the Interfaith Health Clinic. They have very nice pumpkins in a variety of sizes. I usually stop and buy a couple. The church is located on KP between Papermill Drive and Wesley.

There is a family in Knoxville at the intersection of Piney Grove Church Rd. and Middlebrook Pike that sells at a roadside stand in there front yard. They have been there for years, I remember going there as a kid to pick out our Pumpkin. They are reasonably priced and have a good selection. We have always called the old man there the Pumpkin Man, but I think they actually have a name for there farm stand.
Support your local agribusiness!

And don't forget the farmers markets have pumpkins and a variety of squashes and gourds. Those are still running. There at Laurel Church on Kingston Pike at Cherokee Blvd. today, 3-6 p.m.
I was talking to some of the farmers there last week and they've have been thrilled with increased business this year. She said the only problem they have is that they sell out a lot faster than they had expected to. There's talk of extending the market into December with squashes and decorating greens and preserved stuff.
I've had a very delicious summer eating all the great fresh food.

The Sevierville Wal-Mart is probably your most-convenient place. It's on the parkway. There won't be anything in Gatlinburg...but you may find a road-side stand on Hwy 73 between Gatlinburg and Cosby. Pumpkins will be everywhere and nowhere at the same time.
