WHERE TO PICK PUMPKINS IN MICHIANA

Though the rain earlier this year wasn’t too considerate of Halloween traditions, there will be an abundant crop of pumpkins this year at most markets in northern Indiana. 

Get lost picking your own squash at Kercher’s Sunrise Orchards (Goshen), Leininger Farms (Mishawaka) or Thistleberry Farm (South Bend). 

Bullard’s Farm Market in Elkhart picks the pumpkins and sells them at the market, where you can also find fresh, in-season veggies.
