Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers Market
Local food in every season. The chickens are still laying eggs. The salad greens are so leafy and crisp. The onions and garlic are packing spice. The apples and squashes are getting sweeter by the day. Join us for the start of another 365 days of local food. Chefs and eaters, one and all, come enjoy all that grows in Rhode Island year-round! The farmer’s market is open on Wednesdays starting at 4:00pm and also on Saturdays beginning at 9:00am.
