We’re Impassioned for Pumpkins

We’re impassioned for pumpkins this Saturday at the Franklin Farmers Market. Our local farmers are harvesting the best of these fall squashes in every shape, color and size of your imagination for your jack-o-lanterns, home decorations, arrangements, and freshly-baked creations. Don’t simply get excited, get impassioned for pumpkins this Saturday at the Franklin Farmers Market.

Though the typical jack-o-lantern variety is a tried-and-true classic, our farmers like to flaunt their pumpkin growing talents with unique heirloom varieties great for baking or front porch displays. These spectacular cucurbits come in colors like deep sunset red, ice blue, ghost white, speckled, striped, green and gold, and every size from the smallest miniature variety to the largest of the giants. They can be baked in pies, breads, muffins, or cakes or mixed with other fall squashes and mums available at our market for a autumnal home display. Get impassioned for pumpkins, too, and make your next made-from-scratch pie with a freshly-harvest heirloom pumpkin grown by your local farmers.
