Nestled along Mountain Avenue in North Caldwell, NJ is Matarazzo Farms. This local gem is one of the few remaining working farms in Essex County, and the closest one to Montclair.
At this time of year, the most visible thing at Matarazzo Farms is the abundance of pumpkins. Set up on stands along the roadside, they make the farm hard to miss. There are round pumpkins, and oblong pumpkins, pumpkins for eating, and pumpkins for carving. They’re all there.
