Mother’s Day is Sunday, and the market offers you many ways to show your favorite mothers how much you appreciate the love and care they have given. Return the favor with healthy food, plants to tend, teas to savor, all with the benefit of being locally and lovingly produced. We also offer gift certificates.
A huge thank you to all our customers who came out to support our farmers in the pouring rain! Your consistent attendance enables our little market to offer a wide range of local foods, including fresh fish, produce, meat, eggs, cheese, honey, herbs, coffee, breads, flowers and more. Our vendors appreciate the community we have built together; good weather is something we all hope for on market day, but we can rely on each other to come through on the nastier days as well.
We were so happy to have Bolt Coffee Company make their debut last Saturday, with hot and iced coffee, and bags of their beans to take home. They hope that the doughnut snafu doesn’t happen again; we will send out a post on Facebook Saturday morning to let you know if the Knead Doughnuts have arrived.
Cross your fingers (and loosen your belts).
And a reminder that we now carry bread from Olga’s Cup + Saucer at our new market table. Don’t forget to take home a sourdough baguette and a hearty wheat or rye loaf.
Some upcoming events:
Saturday May 27: Pawtuxet River Plant Walk. Wild plant enthusiast Sandy Jacobi will lead a plant walk along the Pawtuxet River trail. Meet at the market table at the Farmers Market at 10 am.
Saturday June 3: Electronic Waste Collection: Goodwill Industries will be visiting the market to collect your electronic waste. They will also accept other items for resale or recycling, such as clothing. A full list of items will be published before the date.
Saturday June 10: Farmer’s Market moves to William Hall Library, 1825 Broad Street, Cranston, due to the Gaspee Day Parade. If you drive, avoid Park Avenue and Pawtuxet Village. Farmers appreciate Gaspee Day customers because attendance is lower than usual.
Friday June 16: Firefly walk at 8:45 PM, meet at the lower Rhodes on the Pawtuxet parking lot, Cranston. A half-hour walk to see the firefly mating ritual. Bug repellent, long sleeves and long pants recommended. Please do not bring jars, nets, dogs or noisy electronics.
See you at the market.
