Saturday, November 9, is opening day of the second season of the Aquidneck Growers’ indoor winter market in the old parish hall at St. Mary’s Church on East Main in Portsmouth. A wide variety of locally grown fruit and vegetables will be available through the winter in addition to fresh breads and pastries; locally sourced fresh seafood; pasture raised meat and eggs and changing weekly artisan vendors. The shopping experience can be completed with a cup of great coffee while meeting friends and checking out tunes from live musicians.
Shopping at a farmers’ market not only supports local agriculture and the preservation of open space but also keeps more grocery dollars in the regional economy. Market founder, Lisa Lewis, is thrilled by the increase in market visitors over the past few seasons “Thanks to all our local shoppers for a fabulous summer season; we welcome your continued support at our winter location.”
