Hope Street Farmers’ Market Starts

The weather is looking good for Saturday, May 4, 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. Gardeners can usually find seedling six-packs while getting their pruners (and knives, etc.) sharpened at Slowhand Sharpening. (Cory recommends, “Try your best to get there early and leave your items for the week if you can.”)

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.

Go to their FB page for a list of scheduled vendors including: Barden Family Orchard, the Bakeshop, Green Leaf Farm, Hillside Mushrooms, Simmons Farm, the Local Catch, and several guest vendors.

Seen here: The Providence Artisans Market runs a fair along the Blackstone Boulevard side.

Lippitt Park is the triangle of land where Hope Street and Blackstone Boulevard meet, almost in Pawtucket.

Credit cards, WIC, EBT, and cash.

Hope Street Farmers’ Market, 9am to 1pm, Saturdays through October 26, Hope Street at Blackstone Blvd, (directions)

Who doesn’t have a dull hatchet in the garage? Seen here is Cory of Slowhand at the winter market.
