Viewfinder: Local Farmers Markets Open to Fresh Season

Area farmers markets opened over the last week for the summer 2011 season.

Ah, the farmers market.

Something about visiting one makes the summer even sweeter, as we appreciate the wholesome, fresh fruits and vegetables that are being grown right here in our own community.

The Aquidnecks Growers Market opened for the season on Wednesday, June 8, while the Aquidneck Grange Market welcomed visitors on Thursday, June 9. Patch recently stopped by both to catch up as the vendors get going for 2011.

The Aquidneck Growers Market will continue through October 29 in Middletown. You can visit the market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays at Newport Vineyards on East Main Road. Or, you can also stop by the Newport market on Memorial Boulevard, which is open from 2 to 6 p.m. on Wednesdays, also offering locally grown and harvested herbs, vegetables, flowers, meats, shellfish and many another items.

The Aquidneck Grange Market is held each Thursday from 2 to 6 p.m. at 499 East Main Road, Middletown.
