Squash, by Josh. Sorry.Here’s an update from the Friends of the Pawtuxet about the last four farmers’ markets of the season.

The Pawtuxet Village Farmers Market has four more markets this year, ending with a special Thanksgiving market Saturday November 21. Other markets may fail as the weather gets a little colder, but not us.

Pawtuxet Village Farmers’ Market
Rhodes on the Pawtuxet
Cranston, Rhode Island
9am – 12pm
Saturdays until November 21
Farmers have plenty of produce left. Barden Orchards has cider and numerous varieties of apples for eating and cooking. Chang Xiong has sweet and white potatoes, green beans and peppers, in addition to some great fall salad greens. Michele Kozloski promises to have lots of fresh eggs this week, carrots and a collection of acorn, delicata, carnival, sweet dumpling, Long Island cheese squash. Peter and Bob Fratantuano will have vegetables and Ingrid’s home made jams and relishes. And Danny from Palmieri’s bakery will have an array of breads, cookies and other items.

Tell your friends and neighbors. The market is open until November 21.

Budding Arborists Needed

Saturday, we will plant two new tulip trees at the market and we need help to dig the holes. Kids and adults are welcome when we start digging at 9:30 AM or later. Stay for as long as you like. This is a great chance to teach children to be stewards for the environment. We will have some shovels and spades, but if you have a shovel, please bring it. It could be the most satisfying work you do all week. A donation from Sandi Jacobi and funds raised at our used book sales paid for the trees.

Halloween Parade Rescheduled

The Pawtuxet Village Halloween parade has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 31, 2009. Parents with children should meet at 12:15 pm at the Gazebo in Pawtuxet Park to walk through the Village. The parade ends at The Village Playground. Wear a costume and bring an empty goody bag to trick-or-treat through the Village. If you cannot participate in the parade, join us from 1:00-3:00 at the Village Playground for games, music and (more) treats! Music by Joe’s Backyard Band. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Co-sponsored by the Pawtuxet Village Association and Friends of the Village Playground. For more information about the parade, contact Marta V. Martínez or about the Village Playground, contact Kate Motte.

See you Saturday at the market.
