Organic Pumpkin Patch


Come to Marin Country Mart to buy local, organic pumpkins at our Pumpkin Path, open all day, every day. Choose traditional Howdin Jack-o-Lanterns for carving, or Cinderella Pumpkins, which are great for carving and delicious for eating. There’s also a great selection of specialty pumpkins in colors ranging from white to beige to green, and striped green and orange. Peter Martinelli grows the pumpkins at our patch on his farm in Bolinas, Fresh Run Farm.

This is an honor system pumpkin patch, with the payment box at the patch. Prices are set as a flat rate by size – small ($10), medium ($15), large ($20). And don't miss the two locally grow GIANT pumpkins. on display, each weighing nearly several hundred pounds each! (Guess their weight for a chance to win yummy prizes from Marin Country Mart.)

There are two pumpkin patch locations – one at the entrance to the Mart between Three Twins Ice Cream and Starbucks, the other in front of the Trading Post & Post Office.

The Old Way is the Americana duo of Irena Smith and Joshua Smith. They return to Folkish with a set of original folk and Americana as well as a touch of bluegrass and traditional material. The Old Way creates music in a manner befitting their name, slowly guiding their songs into being, and allowing each one to find it's own place in their sound. They have created a repertoire of original material which has its foundations in this process, a throwback to an era of patient manifestation. "Northern California's The Old Way is an acoustic Americana/bluegrass duo that has songs so beautiful you won't even know what to do with yourself." - Alex De Vore, Santa Fe Reporter
