Halloween’s almost here and it’s time to pick out your pumpkin! Come to the market to find a wide variety of squash, good for eating — and carving. From the traditional jack-o’-lantern and ghost pumpkins, to kabocha and kuri, MFM’s farms are bringing pumpkins in all shapes and colors. You’re sure to find a unique canvas that will set your carving apart from the crowd.

Check out our free pumpkin carving ideas with a farmers market twist!

  1. Get a copy of your stencil at the market when you buy your pumpkin, or click to download and print your stencils.
  2. Tape onto pumpkin.
  3. CAREFULLY poke holes along the dashed lines with a skewer or knife to make cutting easier.
  4. Cut along the dashed line and remove unused pieces (compost!).
  5. Place tea lights or glow sticks in pumpkin so it will glow in the dark!

Don’t forget to take photos of your finished pumpkin! Share on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with the hashtag #MFMVeggolantern

A big thank you to Personal Beast for its recent donation to the Montavilla Farmers Market! Their donation is being matched by a grant from the Farmers Market Fund to support our Everybody Eats program. We believe that everyone, regardless of income, should have the opportunity to eat healthy, high-quality food that nourishes both the body and our community. Everybody Eats allows the market to match federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) dollars spent at the market — dollar for dollar. These funds are distributed directly to families experiencing food insecurity in our community to purchase delicious locally grown fruits and vegetables.

Personal Beast is located on Stark St. in Downtown Montavilla. They are your community provider of all things good for your pets, carrying a wide variety of accessories and toys, with an emphasis on locally produced, natural and sustainable goods. The staff is happy to help, whether you’re trying a new food, fitting a harness, or choosing just the right toy. Thank you Personal Beast for supporting local families and farms!
