The Wintertime Farmers Market started in Providence in 2007 inside AS220 with 10-12 farms and producers. The market quickly outgrew the performance space and in 2008 jumped just across the Providence / Pawtucket line to the south hall of Hope Artiste Village, where the Wintertime Market opened its third season in 2009 with over 50 farms and producers. In 2010, the market expanded to a second day: Wednesday evenings. In 2013, we expanded into both the 1005 and 99 hallways of Hope Artiste Village.
