The Magical Glass Pumpkin Patch is returning to Los Gatos! This is a one weekend only event, so mark your calendars for the first weekend in October so you don’t miss it!
Normally this is an annual event, and we are delighted that it’s back in 2021. You’ll find gorgeous hand blown glass pumpkins and more – wonderful craftsmanship!

All the fun happens on the lawn of the Los Gatos High School on Main Street.

Looking for a clever, locally made gift? Check out the offerings at Gooseberry Designs in downtown Los Gatos! Their website and Etsy page give the viewer an idea of their reason for being: “Whimsically Stylish Home & Paper Goodies”
For a recent birthday, my daughter gave me a pillow (shown here) with a very cute map of Los Gatos and Saratoga created by the owner of Gooseberry Designs, Nina Kulick (a Saratoga native, as I understand it). I love it!
In addition to pillows, the shop features a wide variety of items with similar maps from everywhere: prints, stickers, bamboo boards, tea towels, and totes. A few of the locations highlighted on the items are Monterey, San Francisco, Oakland, LA, Seattle, Boston, Long Island, Maui, Palm Springs, and many more.
Take some time and browse their offerings online (links below) or in the store. The items are loads of fun and great to purchase for yourself or as gifts for others.

The Los Gatos Farmers’ Market is a community treasure and gathering point for the townsfolk. Every Sunday, Los Gatans gather downtown at the Town Plaza Park area for a little shopping, casual munching and entertainment. The outdoors market iss full of organic produce, plants and cut flowers, ready made food, include delicious crepes, and often music or other entertainment. While many Santa Clara County Farmers’ Markets are seasonal or subject to weather conditions, this one is open year round, every Sunday, from 8am to 1pm (though some booths begin to break down around 12:30 or so).
The Los Gatos Farmers’ Market is located in Downtown Los Gatos at the Town Park Plaza on Main Street & N. Santa Cruz Avenue (Montabello Way & Broadway). Pets are not allowed in the market, which wraps around the park on the paved roadway, but may be in the park itself.
Over the years, I’ve taken a number of photos of this local gathering spot. Some are current images and others are 5-10 years old.
