Best Montreal Pumpkin Picking Spots

So now that you've been drinking and eating all things pumpkin spice for the last month, it's time to head to the source and get your hands around an actual pumpkin. October is a great time to bake warm pumpkin pies as well as carve up some Jack-O'-Lanterns to get in the spirit of Halloween.

Instead of just heading down to your local grocery store and grabbing a pumpkin someone else picked, why not take the opportunity to get out of the city, enjoy the fall foliage, and pick your own. And if that's not option, you could always check out the Pumpkin Festival happening at a farmer's market near you.
