Become a Locavore- Farmers Markets in Rhode Island Schedule

You just may be asking yourself, what is a Locavore?

is the 2007 Word of the Year for the Oxford American Dictionary

According to Merriam-Webster:


noun \ˈlō-kə-ˌvr\

Definition of LOCAVORE

: one who eats foods grown locally whenever possible

It has become very easy to eat local, in-season, fresh food from the frequent and bountiful Farmers Markets here in Rhode Island.

The following is a Local Food Guide to Rhode Island courtesy of Farm Fresh RI.

I have shortened the list to include mostly Rhode Island Markets, and have sorted the list by day of the week to help you out. You will want to check out the entire list to see what market is nearest to you.

Visit often, eat food the way it was meant to be, support our farmers!  If you are not from Rhode Island, it is very simple to find local Farmers Markets in your area.

Who's Your Farmer?
Farmers markets are one of the easiest places to find the tasty harvests of Rhode Island farms. You'll find a diversity of foods fresh from the fields and meet the people who grow your meal. Plus, every dollar paid directly to a local grower is a dollar reinvested into Rhode Island communities.
