Pumpkin Patches & Corn Mazes
Harvest time is upon us in the Tualatin Valley, and the fun definitely is at the many pumpkin patches and corn mazes that dot our farmlands. Pick a pumpkin from a patch. Get lost in a corn maze. Play a game of pumpkin bowling. Enjoy the sights, sounds and smell of autumn.
Farmers’ market season in the Tualatin Valley is winding down; however, several are still open, and feature the best of the autumn: onions, gourds, greens, radishes and so much more. Taste the season through locally grown produce, baked-that-morning pastries, florals in bright harvest-fall colors, and even libations from local distilleries, wineries and breweries.
