Farm Fresh RI Opens Winter Market
Farm Fresh RI Providence Farmers Market is back under one roof every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at 10 Sims Avenue, in Providence. More than 70 vendors participate throughout the wintertime season (November to April), providing local farmers and food makers a place to sell their produce during the colder New England season.
Farm Fresh RI accepts cash, credit/debit, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)/EBT and Bonus Bucks. The Farm Fresh RI statewide Bonus Bucks initiative doubles the spending power of low-income shoppers to buy fresh produce and invests federal SNAP benefit dollars directly with local farmers and food producers.
Farmers markets play an important role in increasing the availability and accessibility of local foods. They offer more places for local farmers and producers to sell their products and invite the local community to gather over a variety of delicious, fresh foods in their own neighborhoods. Pets are not allowed inside the building per Health Department regulations.
