Homestead’s Pumpkin Decorating Contest Is Back!
One of many fun fall activities is expressing your creativity by decorating pumpkins! We know we’ve got lots of talented kids in our area, and we’d like to show you a sample of their creative genius. So for Halloween month, we’re resurrecting the pumpkin decorating contest, and you get to pick the winners!
On September 27, Debbie dropped off pumpkins, gourds and more to Marissa Sozio, an art teacher at South Hunterdon Regional High School. Her Advanced Art Class and Tech Art Class will decorate the pumpkins that we’ll put on display in our farm market starting October 15. Every purchase gets you a vote in the following categories:
- Day of the Dead
There’s only one rule – no carving! The creation with the most votes in each category will win a gift certificate to Homestead.
Voting is open October 15-30, so make sure to come by and vote for your favorites!
Fall hours start October 14
Monday – Saturday: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (no change)
Fully Stocked With Fresh Produce All Season!
Produce season doesn’t end with summer – we’ve got plenty of Jersey Fresh produce right through fall! And when Jersey crops end, we still carry a full selection of produce, plus our pantry, local meats, and refrigerated/frozen products are always freshly stocked. Plus you can continue enjoying our prepared dishes and Market Meals.

Even MORE Reusable Shopping Bag Choices
We’re only a few months away from the start of Lambertville’s single-use plastic bag ordinance (January 1, 2020), and we’ve got even more fun, cool reusable bag choices for you! Besides our handmade bags made from t-shirts with lots of different designs ($2 each, all proceeds go to St. Andrew’s Thrift Shop), we also have “Barnyard Bags” made from recycled feed bags featuring adorable animals like chicks, roosters, horses, and more.
