Pumpkin season is finally here! Are you on the hunt for local pumpkin farms in Dallas? Maybe you are wondering where to get a pumpkin pie or which coffee shops serve the best pumpkin spice latte. No matter how you choose to celebrate the season, we have your guide to all things pumpkin, including a festive fall event teeming with pumpkin displays!

Drink a Pumpkin Spice Latte

We felt we should first talk about one of the most exciting parts of the season for many: the pumpkin spice latte—so, where can you get a pumpkin spice latte? While you can always go to Starbucks, why not support some local businesses and try their version?

  • Buon Giorno Coffee
    This small, local chain has three locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area: Grapevine, Fort Worth and Southlake. They roast their coffee at the Grapevine location and offer specialty coffee drinks year-round. In the fall, try their pumpkin latte!
  • Sip Stir Coffee House
    Many Dallas-Fort Worth residents sing the praises of Sip Stir Coffee House’s seasonal pumpkin spice latte. With their two locations in the Dallas area (McKinney and Highland Village), it is easy to get your taste of fall!

Eat a Slice of Pumpkin Pie

This delicious fall staple is usually reserved for the Thanksgiving table, but we think it should be enjoyed more than once a year!

  • Emporium Pies
    We would be remiss to not talk about Dallas-Fort Worth pie extraordinaire, Emporium Pies. This Dallas staple serves up delicious pies that have gained a cult following. Treat yourself by grabbing a slice of their pumpkin pie this fall.
  • Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop
    Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop is a national chain serving up many pie options, including gluten-free versions of all your favorites. They offer nine-inch, four-inch and even two-inch pies, so you can pick the perfect size for satiating your sweet tooth. With 10 locations in the area, you will never be far from your slice!

Add a Pumpkin Candle to Your Home

Add a bit of warmth to your home by lighting a fall-scented candle from a local boutique.

  • Society
    This boutique in Dallas describes itself as a “curated collection of quality candles and fine home fragrance.” Shop Society's two locations, one in the Bishop District and the other in the University Park area, to enhance your homes’ fall feel.

Pick a Pumpkin

Finding a pumpkin to decorate your front porch with or maybe even carve is a classic fall staple. Are you wondering where to buy pumpkins in the Dallas area? There are plenty of options!

  • Hall’s Pumpkin Farm
    This farm, located in Grapevine, offers plenty of inventory so you can find your ideal pumpkin. They also offer hayrides and corn mazes for a day full of fall fun.
  • Farmers Markets
    Local farmers markets often offer pumpkins for sale this time of year. Check out your neighborhood market to shop the seasonal favorite!

Attend the Autumn at the Arboretum Event

For the 14th year, the Dallas Arboretum will host its Autumn at the Arboretum event offering so much for visitors to do, see and enjoy. The event runs from September 21 through October 31 and features large scale pumpkin installations, free concerts, cooking demonstrations, a Halloween event and more!
