Giant pumpkin carving @ Metropolitan Market

If you visit Metropolitan Market (41st/42nd/Admiral; WSB sponsor) before about 2 pm, you can watch floral manager Rachel Mottwiler transforming that 300-pound pumpkin into a Halloween creation. We’re told she is legendary for her carving – here are some smaller ones already on display:

You’re also invited to sample cider at the store too.

P.S. Metropolitan Market is one of the regular participants in Admiral District business trick-or-treating, which (as featured in our Halloween Etc. Guide) is happening the day before Halloween this year – next Wednesday (October 30th), 3-6 pm.

    Those green pumpkins have a look on their face like they’re going to be writing a negative Yelp review later. Seriously though, great carvings!

    I stopped by earlier to watch her.  Her work is great!  I didn’t realize she is a met market employee.  unfortunately  they don’t sell them (but they could!). They’d be great auction pieces for a fundraiser!
