Here’s a note from The Friends about tomorrow’s Pawtuxet Village Farmers’ Market.

Market Moves to Hall Library

Saturday June 11, the Pawtuxet Village Farmers Market will be in the parking lot at Hall Library on Broad Street in Cranston due to the Gaspee Day parade. The market will be open for the usual hours with the usual vendors. If you drive to the market, avoid Park Avenue and Broad Street in Pawtuxet Village because of parade traffic.

Saturday June 18, the market will return to Rhodes on the Pawtuxet for our official opening which includes the spring used book sale and a 10 AM wildflower walk.
The book sale will have a large selection of books because Edgewood used book dealers Sam and Penelope Hough secured a collection of books from an estate.

We can always use additional volunteer help both setting up and taking down. Set up will start at 7:30 AM. We also always need tables. If you can drop off and pick up a table for the sale, it will help. If you would like to help, come to the market at 7:30 AM June 18.Book donations may also be dropped on the porches at 10 & 18 Williams Avenue, 37 Ferncrest Avenue and 25 Berwick Lane.

ExploreCranston

ExploreCranston will have free sailing, canoeing, biking and fishing events this summer for people of all ages. June 25 Friends of the Pawtuxet will sponsor canoeing on the Pawtuxet River. July 9. the Edgewood Sailing School will offer sailing from the Edgewood Yacht Club. August 13, features a group bike trip along Cranston’s bike path and August 20 the West Bay Land Trust hosts fishing, canoeing and tree planting at Meshanticut Lake. To learn more, and register, go to ExploreCranston.org or pick up a flyer at the market. Space is limited for the canoeing and sailing.
