Join us for Kids Day at the Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers Market Saturday, December 15, 9am to 1pm. The farmers market features an extensive selection of locally grown, locally made food — from fresh produce, poultry, meats, fish, cheeses, and baked goods to prepared foods, holiday wreaths and gifts, self-care products, salsa, sauces, ferments, pickles, and more!
WHAT TO EXPECT AT KIDS DAY
For Kids Day, the market will also offer special activities and treats for the kiddos… and anyone who’s young at heart! Stop in anytime during market hours (unless otherwise noted) for these fun things:
THE BALLOON LADY! (aka. Kara)
Art on the Spot will be bringing loads of fun! Find them near the front of the Yellow Hallway (999 Main Street entrance) for:
- Photo Opportunity with Mrs. Claus!
- Face Painting
- Balloon Animals
- Henna and Tattoos
Our very own Nutrition Education team will have a table for children of all ages to visit near the front of the Green Hallway (1005 Main Street entrance)! We will have materials for children to construct their own fruit or veggie ornament — perfect for hanging on your holiday tree or anywhere around the house! For the older kids, we will explore where in the world our food comes from, in order to understand the path food travels to reach our plates. Let’s celebrate eating local together!
SALE ON COOKIES FOR KIDS
Olga’s Cup + Saucer is offering $1 off cookies for kids! Find them about halfway down the Green Hallway (1005 Main Street entrance).
PICTURES WITH THE NUTCRACKER CAST!
Get your picture taken with the Festival Ballet of Providence cast of The Nutcracker in the PE Fitness Studio, located downstairs from the farmers market! To get there, head down the stairs at the back of the Green Hallway (1005 Main Street entrance) to the lower floor and turn right.
All guests can enter to win a family four-pack of tickets for the show (one entry per party, please)!
Visit local author and storyteller Mark Binder in his studio upstairs from the farmers market! To get there, head up the stairs at the front of the Yellow Hallway (999 Main Street entrance) to the second floor, and go to unit #1212.
In addition to the local musicians who will play for us at the market, keep an eye (and an ear) out for more joyful noise as carolers sing up and down the halls of the market!

FARMERS MARKET MAPS
Overview Map The market layout inside the building, with surrounding streets and parking. PLEASE NOTE: Until Further Notice, the hill along the side of the building connecting Dudley Street to Esten Ave — where the large parking lot is behind the market — is closed to vehicles (open to foot traffic) due to construction. This is unfortunate but unavoidable. Rest assured we will be excited to share the news the minute the hill is reopened, so stay tuned.
Use Alternate Route To access the large parking lot behind the market, take Moshassuck St or Warren Ave to Esten Ave.
