The Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers Market is opening for its 10th season on November 5. The largest indoor farmers market in New England, it will be open every Saturday through April 29, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. — this year including both December 24 (Christmas Eve) and December 31 (New Year’s Eve). That means extra holiday shopping opportunities for consumers and more chances to support local businesses.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the wintertime market, Farm Fresh Rhode Island will host special events, cooking demos, giveaways, and sales throughout the season. Ever growing, the 2016-2017 Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers Market will be home to a bustling community of shoppers, families, musicians, artists, growers, and artisans gathering over a shared interest in delicious locally grown foods. The market will feature more than 80 new and returning vendors selling a huge array of local products, from fresh produce, seafood, poultry, meats, and cheeses to baked goods, prepared foods, herbal remedies, seasonal flowers and wreaths… and so much more.
The Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers Market is located in two spacious hallways at 1005 and 999 Main St., Pawtucket. The R-Line bus literally stops at the market’s front door. Multiple parking lots are provided for convenience, and street parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood. Ramp accessibility is located at the 999 Main St entrance and in the building’s center courtyard. For more information visit www.farmfreshri.org.
