TUNNEL VISION; GOODWILL HUNTING; MATZO BALLS OR MARSHMALLOW PEEPS?
Only three weeks until the market opens May 6! We can't wait to greet our vendors and get farm-fresh produce, meats, eggs, honey, and local fish, baked goods, and coffee and doughnuts. One of the factors that has enabled our farmers to grow produce later in the fall and earlier in the spring (and sometimes all winter) is the federal grant program that has reimbursed them for building high tunnels. These unheated greenhouses take in the sun's … [Read more...]

Your support every week makes the consistent delivery of local fish, meat, produce, and other food and farm items possible; for a small market such as ours, … [Read more...]
SPRING WILL ARRIVE! TIME TO PLANT PEAS; KNEAD A DOUGHNUT?
Despite the forecast for the next week or so, the vernal equinox is in 5 days, and that means the official start of Spring. Longer days and warmer temperatures will turn our thoughts to daffodils, apple blossoms and the return of our farmers and vendors to Pawtuxet Village on May 6. Traditionally, St. Patrick's Day is pea-planting time. Tender shoots should be popping up in 6 weeks or so if you have planted outdoors. However, our farmers … [Read more...]
CH-CH-CHANGES; BOLT OUT OF THE BLUE; MEET YOUR MEAT
The new season, which starts May 6, will feature significant alterations to our line-up. Long-time loyal vendors Presto Strange O Coffee and LeFavorite Bakery have decided to forgo the market this year. We will miss them and their delicious treats, but you can find them via their internet postings and storefront, respectively. Fear not, though! Bolt Coffee, a Providence company that runs the cafes at the Dean Hotel and the RISD Museum, will … [Read more...]
ONE FISH, TWO FISH, RED FISH, BLUE FISH; FAREWELL, MICHELLE
It's February already; only 3 months until our 2017 market season begins on May 6!
