You can buy a piece of pumpkin you enjoy and if it has seeds keep those. Let them dry before planting again.

I would advise against using shop bought pumpkin for seed. Most pumpkins grown commercially these days are hybrids that are bred to look like the well known varieties. They will not however produce true to type offspring. If you are happy to take pot luck then by all means go ahead and plant them, but if you really want a good tried and true pumpkin variety you will need to get seed from a seed supplier or a friend who has grown them before. Happy gardening one and all.
