9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us for the Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers Market every Saturday, 9:00a - 1:00p, November 5 through April 29 — this year including both December 24 (Christmas Eve) and December 31 (New Years Eve)! That means extra holiday shopping opportunities and more chances to support local businesses.
The farmers market is located in two spacious hallways at 1005 and 999 Main St., Pawtucket, RI 02860. The R-Line bus literally stops at the market’s front door. Multiple parking lots are provided for convenience, and street parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood. Ramp accessibility is located at the 999 Main St entrance and in the building’s center courtyard.
10 Seasons and Counting
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the wintertime market, Farm Fresh Rhode Island will be hosting special events, cooking demos, give-aways, and sales throughout the season. Farm Fresh RI first started the wintertime market in 2007 inside AS220, a Providence gallery and forum for the arts, with just seven vendors. It quickly outgrew that small space, and in 2008 jumped just across the Providence/Pawtucket line to a single hallway of the Hope Artiste Village on Main St in Pawtucket. In Fall 2012, with the market bursting at the seams, it was expanded into both the 1005 and 999 hallways of Hope Artiste Village where it remains today. For this 2016-2017 season, over 80 vendors will be selling their locally grown products, including vegetables, apples, cranberries and other produce; seafood, meats, poultry, and eggs; artisanal cheeses, breads, gluten-free and other baked goods; lotions, soaps, cosmetics, candles, honey, pickles, sauces, salsas and preserves; chocolates, nuts, juices, teas, coffee and other beverages; prepared foods and food trucks; flowers, plants, wreaths and more!
The farmers market accepts CASH/CHECK, CREDIT/DEBIT, and SNAP/EBT. For customers using SNAP at the market, Farm Fresh RI offers a 40% bonus! That means for every $5 swiped using your EBT card (at the farmers market Welcome Tables), you get $2 free Bonus Bucks to spend on fresh fruits and veggies!
