Our market will provide an amazing array of options for showing the moms in your lives your appreciation in an eco-friendly way. From veggie, herb and flower starts for gardeners, local chemical-free produce, fish, eggs and meat for cooks and consumers, to CSA memberships and gift certificates for season-long enjoyment, let us help you find a gift that will make a lasting impression without leaving a big carbon footprint.
We will also be hosting a floral designer for the day:”Moon Flower is a small but bountiful floral operation run by Jenni Kishkovich.
The flowers are grown on her family’s micro nursery in Smithfield. The highlights of the growing season are double bloom tulips, peonies and giant alliums.
Jenni loves foraging for herbs, berries and wild flowers she can use in her arrangements. She especially enjoys creating wedding florals.
Jenni’s favorite flower has always been lily of the valley. In childhood summers spent on her grandparents nursery in Russia, she would pretend the little bell shaped flowers were fairy hats.”
Jenni will be setting up her booth next to Blue Skys Farm; stop by and get some lovely local bouquets.
Also visiting this week: the ES Rhodes Elementary School PTA will hold their annual bake sale. Proceeds from the sale help fund the many programs and projects sponsored by the parent group. Support the kids of our community, and have a muffin.
Mark your calendars: next Saturday, May 19, there will be a guided plant identification walk on the Pawtuxet River Trail. Led by local wild plant enthusiast Sandy Jacobi, the gentle hike will leave from the market welcome tent (the red canopy) at 10 AM.
If we are blessed with rain tomorrow, the market goes on as usual. Some precipitation will create perfect conditions for planting all those veggies starts on Sunday!
See you at the market.
