Michele & Christina

After a summer of Saturdays at the Casey Farm’s Farmers Market in North Kingstown, Michele Kozloski will be at the Pawtuxet Village Farmers Market this Saturday selling carrots, onions, lettuce, eggs, pesto, bok choy and other vegetables. Joining her for just this market will be Christina Dedora, of Blue Sky Flower Farms, who will have fall floral arrangements for sale. Stop by and say hello.

Our last market of the year will be Saturday November 21.


Saturday will be Governor Francis Farm beekeeper Bernie Bieder’s last market for the year. His fall honey crop was not as much as he hoped for and he wants to save some until the July crop is ready
Bernie passes along this message, ” I sincerely thank all the people who returned the empty honey jars. This has added up to a good saving for me, and the Pawtuxett people are the nicest in RI. I have enjoyed talking to each and everyone of them. My BEST for the coming year.”


Looking for a special gift? How about a Pawtuxet Village Farmers Market shopping bag? The bags are made in New Hampshire of recycled soda bottles with a great design by Juan Cano and Jim Borstein. Only $10 with the proceeds going to the market. To order contact Annemarie at


A representative of the Providence Animal Rescue League will be at the market Saturday to talk about pet adoption.

See you Saturday at the market
