Why You’ll Love Organic Pumpkin Puree (2-pack)
Pumpkin spice and everything nice is found in this hearty two-pack of ready-to-use puree from Farmer’s Market Foods. Inside each 15 oz. carton, there is only one ingredient: certified organic pumpkin. With such simple ingredients, and no additives, the result is fresh, gourmet flavor that can be used for traditional pie or other baked goods like muffins and cookies (even soup and chili!) during the fall or anytime of year.
The nutrition of pumpkin puree
Though pumpkin puree is generally associated with the decadence of homemade pies, it’s actually an incredibly healthful ingredient that can be used in just about everything (hence the never-ending assault of pumpkin flavoring that happens around September of every year). The real magic of this hearty vegetable, though, is its nutritional value, including loads of vitamins and minerals, fiber, protein, and iron. In addition, Farmer’s Market Foods Organic Pumpkin Puree is also low-calorie and free of fat, cholesterol, and added sugar.
One of the biggest benefits of eating raw pumpkin puree is the incredible amounts of vitamin A in each serving—in just a half-cup of Farmer’s Market Foods puree, there is 420 percent of the recommended daily value!
Vitamin A is responsible for a whole host of important purposes, including immune function, cell communication, reproduction, and (most prominently) eye health. Just like carrots, the large stores of vitamin A in pumpkin supports the normal functioning of the membranes around the eye and cornea, so it’s vital for good vision. It’s also necessary for growth and regeneration of skin cells as well as the tissues in the heart, lung, and kidneys.
Vitamin A is just as much regarded for its use in beauty treatments. In fact, a deficiency of the vitamin will sometimes be apparent by dry, raised bumps on the skin, particularly on the back of the arms. Since it’s vital for cell turnover, if you don’t have enough of this nutrient, then skin can become scaly and rough, rather than fresh and youthful-looking.
Pumpkin also has beta-carotene, a form of vitamin A that is responsible for the vibrant hues in certain fruits and veggies and revered as an incredible disease fighter. Beta carotene helps to prevent the body from free radical damage, and has been seen to reduce the risks for heart disease and cancer.
Over the years, vitamin C has developed a reputation for keeping colds at bay. While that isn’t necessarily true (in fact, zinc is a better option), it is vital for overall wellness. Vitamin C is essential for the growth and repair of tissues in the body and helps to create collagen—a protein that the body uses to make skin, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. It also has antioxidant powers, blocking the effects of free radicals, which can accumulate and lead to chronic diseases or speed up visible signs of aging.
This gourd is incredibly low in calories but high in fiber, a combination that works wonders for digestive health. Fiber is the indigestible portion of plant foods that we eat. It passes through the intestines, simultaneously cleansing them (promoting normal bowel movements) and also removing cholesterol and fatty acids from the stomach. The recommended intake is 25-30 grams of fiber daily, which will not only provides plentiful digestive health benefits but also helps to portion food more appropriately. That’s because fiber has the unique effect of making you feel full, so you can be satisfied after meals rather than craving more.
Cooking with Farmer's Market Foods Pumpkin Puree
Pumpkin can be used for so much more than pumpkin pie (although Thrive Market has a pretty amazing recipe for that, too!), but the problem with a lot of the pumpkin-flavored foods you find at the grocery store is that they’re packed with sugar. Instead, use these recipes for breads and baked goods that play up the gourd’s natural good taste—and try it in some savory dishes, too.
Regular old hummus can get boring after a while, but you can spice things up by adding pumpkin puree and a good dose of spices to the mix. Here, chickpeas and pumpkin puree are mashed together with tahini, garlic, cumin, chili powder, and cinnamon, among other common ingredients. The result is an exotic dip that is great with pita and vegetables or works wonders in a fresh lunch bowl. It takes only five minutes to make and can be stored in the fridge for up to four days.
Made with gluten-free all-purpose flour, this warm pumpkin bread is totally wheat-free and Celiac-friendly. For even more flavor, raisins and currants are mixed into the batter, too. Savory enough to enjoy as part of your breakfast but also sweet enough to munch on for dessert or an afternoon snack, the list of wholesome ingredients makes it the perfect staple to your diet.
Pumpkin pie for breakfast? Just take just one sip of this flavorful smoothie and you’ll be convinced that you enjoyed dessert for the first meal of the day. This recipe naturally sweetens up the puree with dates and banana while letting the powerful antioxidants go to work. Using coconut milk gives it an intensely creamy texture, and adding in spices like cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, and cloves gives it a familiar taste. This frozen treat also makes a great dessert.
Here’s a vegan and gluten-free recipe to add to your arsenal of holiday cookies. Made with oat flour and rolled oats as well as pumpkin puree, they have the nuttiness of an oatmeal cookie and the spice of a pumpkin pie. Instead of raisins, though, add in some vegan chocolate chips to the batter for a pop of sweetness.
If pumpkin pie is what you’re after, here’s the recipe you’ve been waiting for. It includes all the classic fall flavors like pecan, maple, cinnamon, ginger, and of course, pumpkin, but the fresh ingredients and nutty crust really enhance the overall flavor. Top this one with some decadent coconut whipped cream for a truly Paleo-friendly dessert.

Better than Libby's
This Pumpkin Puree made the best pies this Thanksgiving. We ordered it again!
Tiny boxes, Great taste
Itty bitty boxes. Look at the size before purchasing. Tasted awesome.
- Shannon Washburn
I made a pumpkin cake with this and it was delicious! It a bit harder to get out of this packaging, as compared to a can, but it is probably a healthier package.
Easy and very good
I love having pumpkin in these boxes instead of a can, it's just easier and if I don't use all of it I can simply fold the top and put it in the refrigerator. And organic pumpkin with nothing added is perfect. It's one of my favorite things to have at breakfast, heated on the stove with some applesauce, a little coconut oil and salt. Yum.
Vitamin A Goodness
I never had fresh Pumpkin Puree like this nor any fresh raw Pumpkin, so I truly did not know what it would taste like. I only had pumpkin in muffins, cakes, cookies and drinks before I picked this up. To me it taste exactly like sweet potato and was wondering if the labeling was wrong lol. I asked a couple of friends and they told me it is very comparable, so keep that in mind. I loved it and made cookies and soup out of it <3 Christopher
Perfect for Halloween [Test]
- Thrive Test
Really delicious. As a long time organic gardener and home canner I love this product. Bright flavor...just like out of the garden! Love the packaging as well. So much nicer than a clunky can and so much better.
Great in chili
I tried a new chili recipes that included a box of this pumpkin that really wowed me
Great! Will buy again.
Love that it is organic and comes in a box. Put it in oatmeal, smoothies as well as baked goods. 2 pack is really nice too.
Its just pumpkin :)
Well, I was excited getting real pumpkin. It is hard to find in regular stores except at the winter holidays and usually a processed canned product. I have used pumpkin for a few years now as a supplement for myself and my cats. I fed my ailing elderly cat baby squash and pumpkin-it is sweet which she liked, but also helped to ease constipation and belly aches.
I tried my new kitty on this product, and she sort of liked it. She prefers it mixed with the cat meat.
I tried it too, but found it bitter and with hard bits of burnt pumpkin skin in it. That was a bit of a turn off. But overall, it will be good for the cat, also to put in chai protein shakes for an added taste, texture and Vit A for myself. I am sure it will also make fine baked goods, pumpkin custard or pie or cake/bread. It is nice that it is a pure product, similar to what I would make at home, but without the mess. It is packaged in the foil boxes, which is fine for single use, but if you intend on doling out portions of the product, put it in a sealed container or jar and refrigerate.
look mom, no can!
I'm pleased as punch to find pumpkin not in a can! I have a severe nickel sensitivity and can't eat food from cans without getting blisters. Glad to see that so many food companies are switching from cans to cartons. It will make for more diversity in my diet.
Organic Pumpkin Puree (2-pack)
GREAT buy, great product!!! :o)))
- Debbie C.
I made PumpkinCurry, a recipe I found on the makers website. It was wonderful! FreshMarkets has many recipes to choose from. The product itself is very good! I much prefer this type of packaging over the canned variety. Very nice!
wonderful organic pumpkin
While I've not tired this in the box, I've been using the the canned pumpkin for a few years now. It's wonderful, has a terrific taste, and is useful for so many things. I use it daily to supplement my kitties' food. They get more fiber and water in their diet, and they like the taste (well, recently one stopped, but she's not eating well anyhow, She's getting old, and appetite is lowering.)
I've made pumpkin soup with it, added to to meat for extra flavor, added it to bone broth, even wonderful pumpkin pie, like the label says. It's terrific.
I love this pumpkin for cooking, smoothies and to mix in for my dog with her food.
I use this pumpkin for everything, from ice cream to muffins, and pancakes to cookies. It's always fresh and I love that it's organic, great price too!
Love this pumpkin!
I normally buy this pumpkin at Whole Foods for $3.99+ per box. Love the deal here.... 2 for $4.25! I use this for cooking and for daily fiber for my dog. It always has a nice, smooth taste.
Love this to sneak into muffins and smoothies
organic pumpkin puree
This is soooo goood. I love my pumpkin pie. I am going to use some of it in my next batch of my organic bagles. I have no doubt it will be as good as the pumpkin pie
Great to add to a pancake mix
Easy and Tasty
It's not only easy to use but it's also easy to store so plan to have this in my pantry year round. I've found myself using it much more than I expected to, for example, it has worked great with various casseroles, curries, and many other dishes! It adds great flavor and I love that the only ingredient is pumpkin!
- C. Patrick
My 11-year-old Australian Shepard mix, Patches, started having what I'll politely call "stomach problems" last year. Her wonderful Vet suggested adding a little Pumpkin to her food, which sounded odd at first, but she insisted it would work.
I had expected her to turn her nose up at it, but she loves it! I've even started using it to hide her pills! I'm so happy I found one that doesn't come in a can, so it's much easier to open. This one also has no other ingredients; it's just pumpkin! Great stuff!
- Janet Roberts
1 Ingredient Greatness
The best part about this puree is that it only has 1 ingredient- PUMPKIN! My favorite us is in pancakes on winter mornings or for holiday treats. Being that the flavor is basic and unmodified, you can add in any spices you want to create the perfect flavor profile.
The reason why I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is the packaging. I have had a few issues opening the box in the past causing me to forcefully cut the box open. I feel that the manufacturer could improve on this element.
- R. Brady
Great all year-round
Pumpkin puree is a multi-purpose staple in my house, all year-round. This puree from Farmer's Market Foods is definitely my favorite. It's organic, non-gmo, and it's in a recyclable paper package instead of the can. It's very nutritious and flavorful and I use it to make treats for my pets. I sometimes substitute it in recipes for thickening or coloring, it's great for baking, and it stores and freezes well. All around great to have on hand
With the holidays right around the corner, I was craving some pumpkin pie. Although I am not the best baker, I thought I could add some of this puree in my pancakes. Voila! These turned out so great.
I really liked the packaging as well. But aside from the pancakes, I prefer to use this more as a seasonal product.
- Neil G.
I've been using this pumpkin puree in my smoothies: 1/2 c puree, 1/2 c almond milk, 1 scoop protein (Paleo friendly), 1/2 frozen banana, 1 tbsp homemade pumpkin spice, handful of ice cubes, 2 tbsp almond butter, handful of dandelion green - it may sound strange but it is truly amazing!
Great Pumpkin for all Types of Dishes!
Farmer's Market has created a delightful pumpkin puree and Thrive Market carries it at a great price!
I began cooking when I was six and never stopped. I love trying new recipes and mixing ingredients you wouldn't think went together. My favorite recipe is Pumpkin Lasagna, it’s the best. I make it for dinner parties all the time.
- Oscar J
Thanks to products like this I can have a safer holiday season every year. I use this stuff throughout the year, but it makes great treats for Thanksgiving, like pumpkin cookies.
I have also found some great recipes for pumpkin pudding and even pumpkin chili. Don't make that face! They taste great and you'll fall in love too!
- C. Plamore
While this does make a great pumpkin pie, that's not my only recipe. I make a divine pumpkin roll with this stuff. Or how about some delicious pumpkin cookies.
I like to make pumpkin bread and even pumpkin muffins with this. The ideas are endless and ever dish is perfect.
- Mitsy Stanko
Pumpkin Pie, yes!
I love using this for the perfect pumpkin pie. It makes the best pumpkin pie I have ever had. That's not the only use for it though.
I make wonderful pumpkin pie smoothies with this stuff. I am hoping to start experimenting with it more in the future.
- Jerry Light
Good Canned Pumpkin Alternative
This tastes way more fresh than canned pumpkin, and you can use it in about the same ways. I use it often in my baked goods for a healthier and lower-calorie version of delicious foods like brownies. I love that it comes in the boxed packaging as I find it way easier to store boxes than cans. It's also easy to open the box and use the contents. Win-win all around.
Holiday goodness all year round
A lot of people fall in love with pumpkins right around October, and don't think about them after Christmas for a whole year.
I'm one of those people, but in my defense, I wear out pumpkins for three solid months. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup, even a custard, all of it is easy to make with this puree.
Organic, pure, fresh and low in fat, this is as close as you're going to get to carving the pumpkin yourself and using it right from the field.
- Terrian R.
Organic Pumpkin goodness
I love the flavor of pumpkin, but I've grown tired of the artificial ingredients in most store bought pumpkin desserts, especially pumpkin pie.
So in search of pure pumpkin to use in home made recipes, I bought this Farmer's Market brand. It's organic, gluten free and has an authentic pumpkin taste with no added sugar or artificial coloring.
It makes wonderful pumpkin pie and is also great for pumpkin muffins. I even chill the pumpkin in the fridge for a tasty snack and I can eat from a bowl.
- Taylor Ramos
Good for baking
I bought this to use in pumpkin soup, but I didn't really like it. However, I was able to use it for many other things, and now I buy it often. I can only find it locally during the holiday season and was happy to find it on Thrive Market.
I have made some wonderful pumpkin smoothies with this product. I use it most often making pumpkin muffins and cupcakes. I also have to admit that my dog loves it and I use it in homemade dog biscuits!
