Hope & Main’s Meet Your Maker Rhode Show at PPL

On Sunday, April 23rd from 2-5 PM, Providence Public Library welcomes Hope & Main and its popular Meet Your Maker indoor market! Red’s Street Kitchen will welcome you to the Washington Street entrance before you head into the Grand Hall on the first floor. You’ll hear the sounds of Rhode Island’s all chef band, Turn for the Wurst, guiding you in. It’s free and open to the public!

As a feature event in PPL’s ongoing On the Table exhibition and program series, Meet Your Maker gives you a chance to peek inside Rhode Island’s food manufacturing economy, fueled by the relationship between food makers, growers, educators, and consumers. You can meet the makers themselves and learn about what inspires them.
