If you can't make it to a pumpkin-picking farm but want to feel a bit more festive than a trip to Tesco’s fruit and veg, get down to Covent Garden’s Halloween Pumpkin Market, hosted in Apple Market. There will be pumpkins, squashes and gourds galore, as well as a stunning autumnal floral display designed and created by the Covent Garden Horticultural team.
The leaves are turning golden and the nights are drawing in. It can only mean one thing, it’s time to start prepping for autumn (aka arguably the Most Charming Season of All). Brace yourself for crisp weather, longer nights, leafy streets and, inevitably, plump orange gourds popping up all over London.
That’s right, pumpkin season is here. Whether you associate it with Halloween or not, there’s no excuse for not taking advantage of the huge number of pumpkin-picking opportunities at farms near the capital. Here are our favourite places to go for making the most of pumpkin season in 2023.
RECOMMENDED: Halloween in London.
