I love going to the pumpkin patch. It's just visually pleasing to see so many colors and shapes. And look like they have such a great variety here.


These pictures should be entered in some competitions. I haven't seen some of these varieties before wonder what they taste like.

As usual, amazing photos. I love the way you can transform a seemingly mundane place like a pumpkin patch into something truly fascinating!


Amy-I'm always particularly jazzed about the market's selection of squash. We both like squash, and this market always has quite a few different types to choose from!

Cate-I haven't even tasted them all! We try to get something a little different each year, in addition to our old favorites.
Here is a site I found with a photo glossary of a few different squash types. http://whatscookingamerica.net/squash.htm We particularly like the little Sweet Dumplings and the Delicatas (I've always called them banana squash, but I've also heard them called peanut squash).

Glennia-Thanks! I love taking market photos because it's usually so colorful. I've done several different market posts...both here and at Urbane...the places never cease to interest me.

When I see all those pumkin photos I know that Halloween is just around the corner

Kerry Dexter

you evoke fall, and the market itself, so well with your shots. thanks.


wow, I didn't know there were so many different types of pumpkins. Great photos!


Truly festive! What a nice, colorful composition.


What a display of fall veggies. I love the pictures of the pumpkins. I wish we had something like this down here in Florida. It would help to get in the mood for the holidays.

I love farmers markets pumpkin patches etc. This is the time of year for fall colors in the Hocking Hills area of Ohio and I've been busy taking pictures there. Planning a romantic getaway with my lovely wife Linda. Have a great week


Heather-I'm looking forward to Halloween, too!

Kerry-Farmers Markets always make such good photo subjects this time of year. They just say "autumn" automatically!

Maria-I'm always amazed at the number of different types of pumpkins, squash and gourds at the markets, too.

Lorraine-The colors were so great that day that pretty much all I had to do was point the camera and shoot :)

Debbie-That is the nice thing about Michigan and the Midwest, we have a real change of seasons. Thanks for stopping by!

Joe-Have a great time at Hocking Hills! We love that area and try to get down for a visit every few years or so.
