From Steve Stycos:
Pawtuxet Village Farmer’s Market begins its 12th season this Saturday from 9 AM to 12 noon, at Rhodes-on-thePawtuxet, 60 Rhodes Place (just off Broad St) in Cranston.
Just in time for Mothers Day, you will find all kinds of local goodies: veggie and herb starts, fish, spring greens, goat cheese, meat, nuts and peanut butter. We’ll also have market gift certificates available.
And NEW this year: Blue Skys Farm will be offering Small State Seeds, locally grown and packaged seeds from Scratch Farm in Cranston. They are chemical free and suited perfectly to our Rhode Island climate.
Our beginning line up of vendors includes:
Pak Express (produce, eggs, vegetable and herb starts)
PV Farmstand (meat)(Chuck roast London broil shoulder steak and eye of the round steaks all 1/2 price if pre ordered Chicken is frozen. Prices: pvfarmstand.com)

Coming in the next few weeks:

And returning later in the season, when their crops come in:
Rocky Ledge Farm aka Moosup River (blueberries, produce)
Long Entry Farm (produce, artisan breads)
Barden Orchards (peaches, apples, produce)
Returning this season also is an expanded Market Table. This booth is run by the market to bring artisan food products to our customers from local producers. We continue to offer nuts, peanut butter and popcorn from the Virginia and Spanish Peanut Company of Providence, and Rhody Fresh butter and cheese from the RI Dairy Farms Cooperative. We will also be carrying Terry’s Tasty Treasures on the days she is not at the market. Money raised from the market table goes to support this and other efforts to increase our offerings.
Our market accepts credit, debit, EBT/SNAP, WIC and Senior Coupons.
