The weather is looking good for Saturday, just in time for the return of the Hope Street Farmers’ Market in Lippitt Park. You can put together an entire dinner here, including the cut flowers. And gardeners can usually find seedling six-packs while getting their pruners (and knives, etc) sharpened at Slowhand Sharpening. Cool off with a colorful bottle of Yacht Club soda.
The Hope Street Farmers’ Market is a farmer-run cooperative created and managed by many of the best farmers and food artisans in Rhode Island. We sell fruits, vegetables, flowers, cheese, breads and pastries, pasture-raised meats, seafood, poultry and eggs, and many other items that we grow, make or raise ourselves. Come join us every Saturday morning from 9am to 1pm.
Go to their FB page for a list of expected vendors including a few guest vendors like Mei Mei Dumplings, Rebelle Bagels, and Shuckologist.
The park and its fountain were erected by the WPA and completed in 1940. Let’s hope we can get the water running again. The open lawn provides plenty of room for kids to run around and there is a playground. The Providence Artisans Market runs an artisans fair along the Blackstone Boulevard side.
Lippitt Park is the triangle of land where Hope Street and Blackstone Boulevard meet, almost in Pawtucket.
