Harvest to Home: Aquidneck Island Farmers' Markets

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Aquidneck Island is home to many farms and several weekly farmers' markets offer an abundance of locally grown, super-fresh produce, meat, cheese, and eggs.  Customers walk away with more than an armful of daily fresh food--they relish interactions and exchanges with the people who produced it.  Now that's hard to find in any grocery store!</p>
<p>All of Aquidneck Island farmers' markets run the first week of June through the last week in October.  <a href="http://www.farmfreshri.org/">A complete list of vendors at each market is available here</a>.</p> <ul> <li><b>Wednesday, 2-6pm</b>: Aquidneck Grower's Market , located along the shaded walk on Memorial Boulevard & Chapel Street, Newport.
