My budget flew out the window last Saturday at the Farm Fresh Winter Market in Hope Artiste Village: Free-range eggs, bourbon-flavored dry salame, apples, and I got my knives sharpened.
For this season, over 80 vendors will be selling their locally grown products, including vegetables, apples, cranberries and other produce; fish, shellfish, meats, poultry, and eggs; artisanal cheeses, breads, gluten-free and other baked goods; lotions, soaps, cosmetics, candles, honey, pickles, sauces, salsas and preserves; chocolates, lollipops, nuts, juices, teas, coffee and other beverages; prepared foods and food trucks; flowers, plants, wreaths, holiday gifts, and more!
The market is now spread out along two main hallways in the sprawling old mill building, so there is plenty of room for comfortable shopping.
Forms of payment accepted: Cash/check, credit/debit, and SNAP/EBT.
And no dogs please.
Winter Market, 9am to 1pm, Saturdays through April 25, Hope Artiste Village, Main Street, Pawtucket, (directions)
Why didn’t I try the popcorn? The red cobs look like jewels. Next time.
I swear by Poor Boy Sharpening (knives, scissors, gardening tools).
The RI Mushroom Company has many unusual fungi one does not see in the regular markets.
