Visiting a pumpkin patch and corn maze (ahem maize) on Sauvie Island is just one of those fall things I love about Portland. It doesn’t quite seem like October until you’ve been to a pumpkin patch. So here’s a round up of the best Portland pumpkin patches and a look at our visit to Topaz Farm. Topaz is the new Kruger’s Farm and Market on Sauvie Island, which will always have a special place in my heart! Get ready for pumpkins, corn mazes, caramel apples, cider, hay rides and over-priced pumpkins! ;) But remind yourself that you’re supporting local farms and getting unique and interesting pumpkins.

Portland Pumpkin Patch Tips 2021
- First, remember that COVID is still a thing and these farms are working really hard to keep people safe, happy, and stay in business. Wear a mask. Physically distance. And have some patience.
- To avoid crowds go midweek, even Fridays will be a little less busy than weekends. Or go early!
- Wear rainboots. Even if it’s not raining the day you go, if it has rained, it’s gonna be muddy.
Happy pumpkin picking!
