Blue Skys will have lettuce, squash, Juliet tomatoes, and those yummy Gold of Bacau Roma Pole beans. Pak Express will have greens, root vegetables and nime chow.

Havav Near East Market is making new friends here at Pawtuxet Village, not only with the customers but the other vendors as well. Carla and Lia use walnuts and pistachios from Virginia & Spanish Peanut Co. for the bourma and Swiss chard from gC Farms for nivik (chickpeas, Swiss chard, coriander and red pepper). This focus on using locally sourced ingredients is so important to building our network of farmers, producers and consumers. Thanks, Havav!
