Suddenly, it’s summer!
What a delight it is to open outside at the Newport Vineyard and Winery again on Saturdays – come and visit anytime between 9 and 1, but don’t leave it too late if you desire beautiful new vegetables and the freshest of our breads and pastries! We will have our regular fine selection of spring bedding plants, pasture raised meats, locally caught fish, cheeses, jams, and oh, so much more, every Saturday in Middletown through the end of October. Why bother with the grocery store when you can get your supplies, see your friends and have some community fun in the sun too?
Our Newport market opens on Wednesday, June 5, on Memorial Boulevard between Chapel and Edgar, from 2 to 6 p.m., running every week, rain or shine, also through the end of October.
We have new vendors joining us this season, so be sure to stop by The March Hare, Rocky Hooves and Tex Mex Tatties by Chef Big Dog to see what they have to offer.
You can bring your kitchen scraps for composting to both market locations thanks to a program by volunteers from Island Community Farm/Sustainable Aquidneck. Check this link to be sure that you have the right stuff in your bag of compostables (no citrus peels because worms hate them!) and drop them off at the markets and they will be used in the St. Mary’s Church Community Garden to feed the needy.
We are working on a renewal for our EBT permit and hope to have it running in the next week or two so that EBT customers may shop using the program benefits and all customers may run their debit or credit cards and receive Fresh Buck coins (for a $1 fee) that can be used at all market stalls.
