New Orleans may not have fall foliage, and it may not have cool weather, but at least we have pumpkins. Yes, most of the pumpkins at these patches are imported from New Mexico, but that doesn’t make them any less carve-able, or the hay rides any less Instagrammable.

Here are seven pumpkin patches around the New Orleans (spanning from Kenner to the West Bank).

Did we miss one? Feel free to drop us a tip.
