Choose decorative pumpkins at the Dallas Farmers Market Pumpkin Patch
From Sept. 16 to Oct. 31, visit Downtown's famous farmers market to peruse the pumpkins and gourds available inside The Shed, an open-air market. The deep oranges and greens of the pumpkins brought in from Floydada, Texas are eye-catching and make for a great photo backdrop. Choose a few to take home with you for a decorative display before patronizing some of the other local farmer's goodies. Local honey, fresh seasonal vegetables, grass-fed beef, pasture-raised eggs, cheese and wine are just a few of the items you can pick up from artisans on the weekends. With weekday happy hour specials across different eateries, make sure you support Dallas Farmers Market's great restaurants while pumpkin shopping.
