EXTENSIVE SELECTION OF LOCAL FOODS
With two long, connected hallways filled with vendors — which we refer to as the Green hallway (1005 Main Street entrance) and Yellow hallway (999 Main Street entrance) — there’s something for everyone at the Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers Market! See a full rundown of this season’s vendors, including who will be rotating on or off each week.

THIS JUST IN — SWEET + SALTY FARM
Sweet + Salty Farm will be with us for a special appearance at our last indoor market of the season! Founded in 2012, Sweet & Salty Farm is an 80-acre farm in Little Compton, RI, run by Laura Haverland & Andrew Morley. They produce yogurt and cheese from their small herd of grass-fed Jersey cows — practicing intensive rotational grazing: moving the animals frequently to fresh, seaside pastures. Sweet + Salty Farm doesn’t use chemicals, pesticides, hormones, GMOs, or antibiotics. They believe in real food, produced with love and a very short ingredient list.
Check out this great video about Sweet + Salty Farm when they were just getting started, from Edible Rhody magazine:
SPRING BOOK SALE
CORRECTION: We accidentally shared that this event was last week. Our apologies! The good news is that you didn’t miss it, it’s tomorrow! Our upstairs neighbor at the market, award-winning local children’s book author Mark Binder will be hosting a spring clearing sale at his studio (Go up either of the front staircases to the second floor, and look for the signs).
What’s on offer? Some items rare. Some are out of print. Some are just awesome to read and share. This is a great opportunity to get your fresh seafood and local veggie shopping done at the farmers market downstairs, and take home a few signed books for your family and friends upstairs.
Fan Special: Visit Mark’s studio and mention this newsletter to get a free Cinderella Spinderella eBook Gift Card — no purchase necessary. Just be sure to say Hi.

COMPOST DROP-OFF & SALE!
You nay know that local composter Earth Appliance Organics picks up household food waste outside the farmers market every Saturday. But tomorrow they will also be selling bags of finished compost — perfect for your spring gardening!
To buy compost: Visit the Earth Appliance Organics table in the Green Hallway (right near Poorboy Sharpening aka. The Blade Whisperer!)
To drop-off food waste: Simply collect your food scraps (please, no non-food items) and bring them to the marked bins on Dudley Street, which runs alongside the Hope Artiste Village building, where the farmers market is held. You’ll see a small green space and a big row of compost bins! If your compost is traveling in a container or plastic bag, please dump the contents into the bin (and dispose of the container or plastic bag elsewhere).
We strive to make our farmers market customer and vendor experience great each market day. Feel free to tell us what you like about the farmers market so we can keep up the good work, and please let us know if you have any thoughts of suggestions on what we could do to make the market even better. What’s on your mind?
