Eggs, by Cobalt123From the Farm Fresh Rhode Island web site, here’s a short description of the indoor farmers’ market in Pawtucket:

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 will also open its third season in 2009 with over 45 farms and producers.

Note: The market will be closed December 26 (too many people traveling!) but are otherwise open every Saturday.

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!

ALL WINTER (AND SPRING) LONG: Lettuces, arugula, bok choi, kale, collards, cabbage, chard, apples, cider, potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, leeks, garlic, radishes, fresh herbs, beets, carrots, parsnips, turnips, winter squash, oysters, beef, pork, Narragansett Creamery cheese, eggs, honey, maple syrup

DECEMBER: Wreaths and trees, broccoli, cauliflower

MARCH: maple syrup

APRIL: ramps, asparagus

ALSO from local producers: jams, jellies, artisan breads and pastries, gluten-free breads, tortillas, chocolates, fair-trade coffee hot or by the pound, gifts for your favorite foodie

The market is right by the Blackstone and Rosinha’s, perfect spots for brunch!
