Default Pumpkins

I passed by a stand today at the intersection of Six-Forks and Possum Trot that has a very good supply. This would be about 5 minutes from you.

I think the intersection is Six Forks and Possum Trot, but if you are coming North on Six Forks after you pass over 540, continue past Durant until you get to the turn for 98. It is that intersection.

If you dont care about where you get them, (I mean if youre not looking for a pumpkin patch), then Fresh Market has them on sale 3 for $10-. Which is the absolute lowest youll find anywhere! Its at 6325 Fall of Neuse rd. so not far from you
So far as far as pumpkin patches to go to like as a family or for kids, Ive found one close by at Hillridge Farms the link is Welcome to Hill Ridge Farms I havent been but it looks fun

Food Lion sells them for $3 each and have quite large ones. A pumpkin is a pumpkin regardless of where it comes from.

Apple, Peaches, Pumpkin pie!
Home Depot in Wake Forest has them for $2.99 & up!
...and when your carving size does matter!

Does anyone know where you can get corn stalks under $8 a bundle?
That price just 'POPS' me!

The Lyons Farms veggie stand moved from the corner of Falls/Raven Ridge north to near the Falls Fire Station (near Fonville Road). They have an impressive looking selection of pumpkins (and mums).

Also, for interesting pumpkins and a great local farm, check out Vollmer Farm in Bunn. It's a little drive, but the farm is great! We visited a couple weekends ago and saw great pumpkins! We love, love, love their lettuce. They also have 'fall fun' attractions (we haven't done them, so I cannot attest).

Lowe's in Apex has smallish white pumpkins! (Lowe's the HARDWARE store, NOT Lowe's the grocery store!)
