Out & About in the 'burbs This Weekend

We’re excited for October—trick-or-treating, apple picking, cozy weekends—and everything going on in the market and in our area ‘burbs!



Still working on all those apples from your last orchard adventure? This weekend, check out a pumpkin patch—complete with hayrides, cider, petting zoos and more—instead!


  • F&W Schmitt’s Farm on Long Island hosts a weekend-long fall festival all through October. Snag a pumpkin, then enjoy a hayride, pony ride, petting zoo and bounce park.

  • In Westchester, Wilkens Fruit & Fir Farm opens its pumpkin patch in October only, so get there fast! They’ve also got a great market, plus other pick-your-own options.

  • In Northern NJ, Demarest Farms is the all-season go-to. Pick your own pumpkin, then hit up the farm store for plenty of goodies to eat onsite, or to take home.

  • Heading to CT? Check out the Jones Family Farm in Shelton, complete with a farm, pumpkin patch, winery, kitchen and plenty of seasonal events.


Enjoy the weekend!














  • Rates may be up, but that isn’t deterring prospective buyers from entering the market.

Looking for a great weekend activity while you peruse the ‘burbs? Check out some local orchards and get picking! We’re in the midst of berry season, so grab your kids and grab some sweet strawberries, raspberries and blueberries right off the vine in these great spots:
