Pick Your Pumpkin

 

We love pumpkins, pumpkins seeds, pumpkin treats, their colour contribution to the season, but most of all we love pumpkin patches! River District Pumpkin Patch is back on Saturday, October 20th during their Farmers Market from 10am-2pm. Pick out your favourite pumpkin and pose for some pictures.

Fun Facts about Pumpkins, they are the worlds largest fruits, there are hundreds of different kinds, and they are good for you. Not only do they make for scary/funny/creative decor on halloween but they are also low in calories & sodium, high in protein, fiber, iron, B vitamins & beta-carotene (antioxidant/Vitamin A). Fun right?

One more fun fact for today - River District was featured in the Vancouver Sun this past weekend for the great success they have had with their Farmers Market! Effortlessly filling their roster of vendors to an exceedingly great turnout on their first day, River District is enthusiastic at the thought of expanding in size by next season.
