Downtown Farmers Market & KidoInfo Play in the Park on Tuesdays

Pick up fresh fruits, veggies, and prepared foods at the Downtown Farmers Market! Located on the Washington Street sidewalk adjacent to Burnside Park, the market operates from 3-6 PM every Tuesday, July 11th through October 31st. Farm Fresh Rhode Island staff will be on site each week, along with a rotating group of local vendors such as Pezza Farm (July/Aug), the Curve & Line Company, Daily Farm, Hill Orchards, The Honey Shop, and The Farm (Sept/Oct). Vendors accept cash, Fresh Bucks, SNAP/EBT, WIC coupons, seniors’ coupons, and credit cards.

Take a look at Farm Fresh RI’s Harvest Calendar for an idea about what’s fresh each week!

In July and August, bring the kids along for KidoInfo Play in the Park, organized by the Downtown Providence Parks Conservancy. See the schedule below.
