Have a very local Halloween

Scary squash: Now’s the time for jack-o-lantern pumpkins — find yours at local tailgate markets.

Find a last-minute jack-o-lantern at area farmers tailgate markets through this weekend. Hugh Wright of Arbor Studios is even slated to offer pre-carved, porch-ready pumpkins at Asheville City Market Saturday. Or, head out to roadside farm stands (perfect places to shop while on a leaf-peeping drive!) or area farm’s fields to pick your own. Visit ASAP’s online Local Food Guide to browse more than 100 farms growing and selling pumpkins at markets, stands, and grocery stores. Once there, you can also search by u-pick offerings.

Winter may be just around the corner, but tailgates aren’t fazed. Lots will continue well through November and into December for special holiday markets. Stay tuned to asapconnections.org and ASAP’s new community website, FromHere.org, for all the details.
