Pumpkin pie!

jnross Oct 7, 2010 12:02 PM

Hi there!

I want to make a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving this year, and am wondering if anyone knows where to find a good pie pumpkin? All I have seen so far are the regular old carving pumpkins. I'm looking specifically for a cinderella pumpkin, but any good pie pumpkin would do.

    Does Costco carry them here yet (again)?

        Well, i must admit i don't know the difference between a carving pumpkin and a pie pumpkin but the answer is still the same:
        go straight to the source, a farmers market or a producer. There are plenty of producers in Saint-Dorothée, Laval... Don't need to tell you where the farmer's markets are do i?
