Throughout the month of October in 2020
St. Augustine traditionally offers a number of places where pumpkins are available for purchase. In 2020, due to precautions made necessary by COVID-19, the list is a bit smaller than in normal years. Here are a couple of the best places to find Halloween pumpkins in 2020:
Sykes & Cooper Farm
5995 Brough Rd., Elkton FL 32033 (904) 692-1370
Sykes and Cooper Farms hosts its annual Corn Maze each October. In addition to the award-winning mazes (each year’s maze is unique, and they’re all quite challenging), the farm offers a lot of fun fall activities, including hayrides, duck races, kids’ play area and a tube slide. They have a nice pumpkin patch right there and sell other fall produce as well. The maze is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, beginning on Saturday, October 3, and continuing through Sunday, October 25, 2020. Visit here for more details.
First United Methodist Church
118 King Street St., St. Augustine FL 32084 (904) 829-3459
Every year, the First United Methodist church offers pumpkins of all sizes and prices at their downtown location on the corner of King St. and Riberia. The pumpkins will go on sale on Thursday, October 8, 2020. Hours are 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily. The church may also offer a Trunk or Treat event later in October, with details to come.
