Covent Garden Westminster will be London's best destination to pick up pumpkins this weekend as the area welcomes its first ever Pumpkin Market on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st October as well as spooky treats for all of the family.
In partnership with Classic Veg Box home delivery and New Covent Garden Wholesale Market, Covent Garden's Apple Market will return to its roots and transform into a vegetable hub boasting 200 British pumpkins and over 14 varieties of edible organic squashes and beautiful French ornamental gourds.
Providing the perfect Autumnal backdrop, the Pumpkin Market will be adorned with fresh flowers from New Covent Garden Wholesale Market, dressed by luxury florist Maison De Fleurs.

They will be on hand to talk about the beautiful variety of edible, organic squashes from Bedlam Farms Organic and tips on how to cook them; also pumpkin carving ideas, and table settings using ornamental gourds!
