2014 Farmers Market Programs
Farm Fresh RI operates programs at 8 summer farmers markets and a winter market in neighborhoods across our state, and we facilitate SNAP / EBT acceptance at 8 more. We believe that every Rhode Island family should be able to take part in the fresh bounty of veggies, fruit, herbs, eggs, meats and cheeses produced by our local farmers. And we believe that our farmers are the key to vibrant cities and to vibrant countryside. That's why Farm Fresh RI works to increase access to fresher, tastier food through the 55 farmers markets across Rhode Island. Our markets connect rural and urban communities, and strengthen the environment, health and quality of life of local farmers and eaters.
