    When do shops stop selling pumpkins?

    With halloween now over and a lot of shops reducing their stock i know the sale of pumpkins will soon be stopping but does anyone know roughly when? Do they carry on for the rest of the week? I want to make and freeze some puree before they're all gone

    Thanks for the answers may seem daft to some but I'm more interested in using pumpkins for cooking so the halloween frenzy is frustrating as some years they keep them in stock for a couple of weeks and others they seem to chuck them as soon as halloween is over

    I work within the supply chain and we bring them in as pre-orders for Halloween so the stock is picked to zero from the warehouse so no supply afterwards as we need the space ASAP for Christmas lines (both instore and warehouse) but some of our stores do have customers like yourself and those stores simply place an order and we stock into them within 4 days. Always worth asking but I'd stick to smaller shops rather than the big multinationals and ask a manager instore. Multinationals don't really have that much influence at store level management to what they stock. Also always worth asking those companies who also have a catering service supply chain as well (a chef gets what he wants lol). Although don't be expecting Halloween pricing! Also try catering supply cash and carrys as some will stock already made frozen puree.
