Where can I find good fresh pumpkins near Boston?

I've been trying to track down good cooking pumpkins for savory dishes, and been turning up blanks most everywhere. All I find are worthless jacks, or (if I'm "lucky") sugar pumpkins. What I'm looking for are hubbard squash, or even better Jarrahdale pumpkins or Queensland blues. There must be a store or farm around Boston that has better varieties - anyone know of one?

    1. I've seen hubbards and blues at most farmers markets recently....but that was before the snow...sometimes Market Basket has chunks of hubbards.

      1. Have you been to any of the farmers' markets? There was a great selection at Atlas Farms at Copley last week. I have photos of their blue pumpkins running on my site tomorrow. I think I remember long Island Cheese, Jarrahadle, Black Futsu, and a few more.

        Sienna has some and I think a few other farms as well.
