Out & About in the ‘burbs This Weekend

Posted on

We’re excited for October—trick-or-treating, apple picking, cozy weekends—and everything going on in the market and in our area ‘burbs!

Still working on all those apples from your last orchard adventure? This weekend, check out a pumpkin patch—complete with hayrides, cider, petting zoos and more—instead!

  • F&W Schmitt’s Farm on Long Island hosts a weekend-long fall festival all through October. Snag a pumpkin, then enjoy a hayride, pony ride, petting zoo and bounce park.
  • In Westchester, Wilkens Fruit & Fir Farm opens its pumpkin patch in October only, so get there fast! They’ve also got a great market, plus other pick-your-own options.
  • In Northern NJ, Demarest Farms is the all-season go-to. Pick your own pumpkin, then hit up the farm store for plenty of goodies to eat onsite, or to take home.
  • Heading to CT? Check out the Jones Family Farm in Shelton, complete with a farm, pumpkin patch, winery, kitchen and plenty of seasonal events.

Enjoy the weekend!
