Farmers Market at RIC
Fruit Hill Farmers Market opens 6th season at Rhode Island College
The Fruit Hill Farmers Market at Rhode Island College will begin a new season on Thursday, Aug. 1, running from 4 to 6 p.m. It will continue each Thursday through Oct. 3. The market will once again be located on the lawn of the old Alumni House on the Fruit Hill Avenue side of the campus.
“We are pleased to be working with our friends from the Fruit Hill Neighborhood Association in bringing fresh, local produce to our neighborhood,” said RIC President Nancy Carriuolo.
The new season will feature farms with a variety of produce, soaps, honey, bread and baked goods, herbs and much more.
The market accepts WIC, Senior Coupons, cash and EBT.
The Fruit Hill Farmers Market was started as a way to unite the college and the neighboring community and to support local growers, crafters, bakers and other vendors.
Among this year’s vendors are Presto Strangeo Coffee Truck, White Oak Farms, Revive the Roots, Proofed Artisan Bread, Decadent Delights, My Wicked Garden and Fruit Hill Apiaries.
There will be a YOGA demonstration from the Heart Spot on opening day, Aug. 1. There will also be music each week featuring Tony Carlino or Tom Guard.
