Fall brings a bounty of food and fun in Petaluma
Our agricultural pride is on full display as Petaluma celebrates the harvest season. The Farmers' Market in Walnut Park happens every Saturday 2:00 to 5:30 pm until Thanksgiving and the Eastside Farmers Market is year-round every Tuesday, 10 to 1:30 pm. Chefs and locals love shopping for produce picked that morning and sold by the grower. You'll find some of the best tomatoes you've ever tasted.
Start a family tradition of picking your own pumpkin for carving the perfect jack-o-lantern at one of Petaluma's many pumpkin patches. Some of them feature amazing corn mazes that practically require a GPS to find your way out. Teenagers love it.
And for the little superheros, ballerinas, witches and ghouls that can't wait for Halloween to come, plan on bringing the family to one of the safe trick-or-treating events offered at many of Petaluma's shopping centers. Visit our Event Calendar for a complete listing of upcoming events!
