I don’t know about you, but just hearing the word pumpkin puts me in the mood for fall. Add in a pumpkin spice latte, a pumpkin spice candle, and you’ve lost me into the world of fall for good. It’s one of my favorite seasons!

So to get us all into the fall spirit, I wanted to assemble a list of pumpkin patches and pumpkin farms; places you too can go to and get into the autumn feeling and perhaps find that perfect pumpkin for your home or front door stoop, all in the East Bay area.

Take a buddy or friend with you, or your family, or make it a fun outing, and you’ll really get into the fall spirit. Celebrating the season with others is a sure way to really enjoy the magic this season brings.

Here’s a great list of pumpkin patches, farms, and corn mazes that are sure to put that fall joy into your life today. Each listing also has its website linked for all the information you’ll need!
