The Perfect Place to Be?

Friday, August 24, 2018

It WAS the perfect place to be!  A clear summer day with…..

live music of all sorts,      

an opportunity to chat and linger with family and friends, new and old,

a chance to check out the newest in electric vehicles (courtesy of Peoples Power and Light),

do some sun exploration via the “sunscope” with Scott MacNeill from the Frosty Drew Nature Center and Observatory (He knows the REAL name of the piece of equipment),

take delight in watching some little ones,

and help yourself to our cookout Party Food – prepared and served by our unmatched volunteer staff!

When you were finished with your watermelon, it was time to visit the South County Art Association to view a fine demonstration of skill and artistry.

Amidst the special events, shoppers still made the rounds, selecting goods from our vendors, the backbone of our market.  Here are a few of them: 2 J Stoney Hill2

All the while, in and around the bustle of our weekly market, Trevor from PBS showed up to do some filming for a production of “Our Town”. And when he took a little breather, Trevor tasted his FIRST oyster – one from Ninigret Oyster Farm!

Season 11 draws to a close THIS Friday, August 31st…We’ll have all the fresh food, local offerings and finely crafted items you’ve come to look for each week in the summer.  The RI Chapter of Surfrider will be there!  Join us one more time in 2018 to be part of our Farmers’ Market Community!
