A nice display of the common and albino varieties of pumpkins at our Fresh Market. Since it is already Halloween and I doubt all were sold - there were likely some 'leftovers'! Of course, with the need for pumpkin pie in the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, perhaps they will find a 'home' after all!?! There has been strong commercialization for the holiday this year - there are three seasonal "Halloween" stores (i.e., sole purpose is Halloween-oriented) within a 2 mile radius here. This is a new marketing/retail ploy and I'm surprised that it seems to be taking off so well in today's economy...must be people are tired of the negatives and ready to have some 'fun'! Works for me!

  1. Love the pumpkins but I can't imagine someone can make enough of a living from Hallowe'en to last all year. Or do they transform into Christmas stores next?
