Here’s where to find pumpkin patches in San Antonio this fall – mySA

There are plenty of ways to celebrate the season, whether it’s the corn mazes or festive autumn decorations. However, you can’t experience the fall without visiting a pumpkin patch. 

The pumpkins symbolize the start of the holidays, bringing up delightful memories and sweet nostalgia from our childhood (at least that’s how I feel when I visit). Also, the weather is turning colder next week, which is excellent as most patches are opening next week. 

Scroll below for the pumpkin patches you’ll find in the San Antonio area, as well as a map of where to find them.
