The best places to pick your own pumpkin in Greater Victoria. Between pumpkin patches and corn mazes, get the perfect fall photo-op with your kids.

As fall approaches, the question looming is: "Where to get the perfect pumpkin in our fine city?" Many of the local farms start to sell their U-Pick pumpkins towards the beginning of October, but it varies each season.

Sure you could go to Thrifty Foods and pick a few out of the bin, OR you could have a slightly more authentic and exciting experience by visiting one of the local pumpkin patches Victoria has to offer! Here’s a few of our faves to get you started on your hunt.
