Join us for the largest indoor farmers market in New England, 9am to 1pm every Saturday through April 2018! The market features a wide variety of locally grown produce, poultry, meats, and cheeses; locally caught fish and shellfish; baked goods and prepared foods; value-added items like salsas, jams, sauces, ferments, pickles, kimchi, and krauts; self-care products, decorations, and seasonal gifts; and so much more!
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 Saturday at the Market
IT’S A BALLOON DRAGON PARADE!
In honor of Chinese New Year, the fabulous “balloon lady” (Kara, from Art on the Spot) will be leading a special parade through the farmers market — and you’re invited to join in the fun and help celebrate the Year of the Dog!
Meet Kara at the front of the Yellow hallway at 11:50 am. The parade will begin at noon. Feel free to bring a drum or other instrument to play, your favorite stuffed dog (no real ones allowed) or dog mask. We will travel through both hallways to bring good luck to everyone at the market. Music accompaniment by Zabinski Music Studio! Want to help name the balloon dragon, and win a $25 gift certificate toward a birthday party while you’re at it? Visit Art on the Spot on Facebook and post your chosen name under the “name the dragon” post!
THIS JUST IN — FOUR TOWN FARM
Sadly, our Brussels sprouts and Kalettes are done for the season, but this mild break has helped to perk up our greenhouse kale that has been absent for a few weeks. This Saturday we’ll have lots of green as well as red and lacinato kale at our table — so come on by and get some fresh-picked, sweet and delicious winter kale!

Did you know that local composter Earth Appliance Organics picks up household food waste at the farmers market? 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).
