I love Portland in the Fall, home to great outdoor activities, such as seeing the seasonal foliage, visiting an apple orchard, and….pumpkin picking! Whether you’re looking for a perfect jack-o-lantern to decorate your porch on Halloween or craving a nicely cooked stuffed pumpkin, you’ll find pumpkins everywhere in Portland during autumn. The city boasts several pumpkin patches where you can go pumpkin picking with family, friends, or your partner. I’ve visited them all, so here are my personal favorite pumpkin patches in or near Portland, Oregon…

The Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island
I’m a big fan of this seasonal family farm which features a pumpkin patch, a produce market, specialty food booths, a gift shop, a cafe, a corn maze, a cow train, and a free hayride. If you are looking for the perfect fall photo-op, The Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island is the best place to visit during the Fall.
As you wander the farm, you come across plenty of spots to snap the perfect autumn shot. Located on Gillihan Road in Northwest Portland, The Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island features over 50 fresh crops, grass-fed beef, and a wide range of products from the local region.
I would recommend trekking through the maize pathways in close-toed shoes and grabbing a harvest, pumpkin-themed beer at the Patio Cafe. The seasonal farm is open to the public from June to October yearly.
