Farmers Market Moves Indoors

The Saturday farmers market will move inside at Newport Vineyards in Middletown for the winter months, celebrating a seventh year providing a year-round market for locally sourced produce and foods on the Island. Hours will change slightly for this season: 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Shoppers can choose from a wide variety of foods produced by 18 weekly vendors. Fresh fruits and vegetables; artisanal breads and pastries; locally sourced, fresh seafood; pasture raised meat and eggs are available every Saturday, with a changing selection of artisan vendors. The Aquidneck Growers Market features quality local products, all made or grown by the market vendors. A full vendor list can be found at aquidneckcommunitytable.org/aquidneck-growers market/.

Customers can pair their weekly grocery shopping with a cup of coffee, breakfast foods, or a glass of wine while surrounded by community and supporting the local economy. Shopping at a farmers’ market supports farming, and the preservation of open space while strengthening the local economy and better health for all. The market also offers a food-scrap collection program that decreases our environmental footprint by turning food waste, which would otherwise end up in the landfill, into compost to be used in community gardens.

Aquidneck Growers Market is open rain, snow or shine, but in the event of extreme weather a cancellation will be posted on the Market’s Face Book page. Aquidneck Growers Market is a program of Aquidneck Community Table.
