RVA Deals

And, suddenly, fall is here! To some that means football games, apple cider, leaf piles, and such, but to others it means dirt cheap pumpkins. This week’s RVA Deals kicks off the Great Pumpkin Watch, Charlie Brown!

With fall officially beginning tonight at 11:09pm, it’s the perfect time to start a pumpkin price watch. Each week til Halloween I’ll highlight where to go for the best deals on medium-sized pumpkins or bigger. It’s still early, so the lowest price I’ve seen so far is $4.50 at Walmart.

Where is your favorite place around Richmond to find good pumpkin deals?
