The transition to autumn is apparent at Crocker Produce, now brimming with pumpkins of all varieties and sizes as well as other seasonal items to help customers get festive for fall.
“We have a lot of holiday decorations,” said owner Lynn Crocker.
He said the stand has an abundance of white pumpkins, a new trend that was very popular with his customers last year. Locally grown on Sand Mountain, the ghastly pale pumpkins range in size from tiny Casparitas up to the largest, which weigh in at 60-70 pounds.
Plenty of standard orange pumpkins are also in stock, including the baby-size Jack Be Little variety. Ornamental gourds, wheat and corn stalks are also available, with multicolored Indian corn set to arrive soon.
Customers can add color to their fall scenes with Crocker’ large selection of mums in shades of red, yellow and orange.
