Summer Preview – Cooler Because It's Warmer

Farmer's Markets

Get out in the fresh air to find fresh, local food

Posted

You know the drill: eat local, support your local farmer and know where your food comes from. It’s much more than lip service in Little Rhody. In fact, it’s hard to throw a rock without hitting a farmer’s market. Of course supporting these markets helps the economy, but it’s also just plain delicious. Eating a ripe tomato in season from a farm within driving distance actually does taste better. Making a salad from arugula grown in Rhody soil topped with seafood harvested from our waters and served with a side of crusty bread baked in a shop down the road is immensely more satisfying. Knowing that your neighbors have put their heart and soul into producing what’s on your plate connects you just a little bit more to this crazy little state we all call home. FarmFreshRI.org
