PROVIDENCE FARMERS MARKET
We are excited to invite you to a year-round farmers market at our headquarters in Providence. You'll enjoy a large selection of local farm and food vendors in a custom-built facility designed for hosting year-round markets. Our building has a premium ventilation system (Merv13), ceiling fans and lots of natural airflow, wide hallways, and convenient parking. This market accepts cash, credit/debit, SNAP/EBT, and Bonus Bucks.
10 Sims Ave, Providence
Market closed 12/25/2021 and 1/1/2022.
Sorry, pets are not allowed inside the market per Health Department regulations.
The regular Saturday market will be closed on 12/25/2021 and 1/1/2022. But we've got your holiday shopping covered with a special Holiday Market Wednesday evening, 12/22, from 3 to 7pm.
Bring your residential food scraps for composting—no fee to you! Please drop off only compostable materials into the compost collection bins, located toward the back of the Farm Fresh parking lot (by the loading docks!) — for pickup by the good folks at Black Earth Compost. (On Saturdays during the farmers market, 9am-1pm, we pull the bins out toward the building entrance, but you are welcome to drop off any time.)
*Please be sure to follow these guidelines for what can/cannot be composted. (Even a small produce sticker can mean the whole batch of compost must be discarded, so please read the guidelines before dropping off your food scraps!)
Support Farm Fresh RI (a 501c3 nonprofit) with every purchase of our merchandise at the Sims Market! Show your support from head to tote with Farm Fresh T-shirts and hats, tote bags, greeting cards, Harvest Kitchen gift packs, and more — at the Harvest Kitchen table every Saturday, 9am-1pm.
We are located at 10 Sims Ave, Providence

Sims Market is an open-air farmers market with vendors inside and out. We are closely monitoring the COVID situation. We aren’t making changes to our policy for customers and vendors at this time, but will keep you updated. Masks are required for all unvaccinated customers, staff, and vendors. Sampling, eating, and drinking are permitted both inside and outside. If you are unvaccinated, we kindly remind you to please wear a mask unless eating or drinking.
This market is operated by Farm Fresh Rhode Island. We are also happy to connect you with the many other farmers markets held each season across RI. Find the farmers markets nearest you for the 2021 outdoor market season.
NEED BUCKS AT THE FARMERS MARKET?
No need to hunt for an ATM or skip vendors who don't have mobile POS. Just swipe your debit or credit card at the farmers market welcome table to receive Fresh Bucks. This token-based currency, launched by Farm Fresh in 2007, never expires and can be redeemed at many participating farmers markets in Rhode Island.
More fresh food with SNAP dollars
Double your SNAP at the farmers market! Bonus Bucks are a 100% matchng bonus for shoppers using SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits at all Farm Fresh RI markets and a large number of other farmers markets across RI. That means for every EBT dollar spent, you get a FREE dollar in Bonus Bucks to buy fresh fruits and vegetables.
