Ocean State Oyster Festival
In September 2017, The City of Providence will serve as the backdrop to the 3rd annual Ocean State Oyster Festival.
More than 6.4 million Rhode Island oysters were sold for consumption in 2013, according to the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council’s (CRMC) 2013 Annual Status Report on Aquaculture in Rhode Island. Local growers raked in more than $4.3 million and employment by farm workers grew by over 20%. The number of aquaculture farms in the state has increased from 37 in 2010 to over 50 in the last year. This sector of the Ocean State’s economy is only now beginning to realize the potential this sector can, and will have, for years to come.
The summer Flea is extending its fifth outdoor season on the Greenway along South Water Street in downtown Providence from 10am – 4pm with local vendors, community non-profits, food trucks and live music.
