The summer market season begins at Mount Hope Farm Farmers Market Saturday May 19th as we move from the Barn into the fields. We are excited to bring you all of your favorite vendors as well as new faces this season. Fresh meats and eggs from Windmist Farms, local vegetables from Roots Farm. Fish and Shellfish from The Local Catch, even pick up a pint of ice cream from new vendor Chelsea’s Creamery. Along side our food vendors you can buy unique gifts from handmade ceramics to soaps, clothes, and bath products. We are looking forward to offering monthly children’s programming sponsored by The East Bay Community Action Program and as always we have a lineup of live music to keep you entertained as you shop. Order before you get to the market using our new app rolling out on opening day. Also, thanks to the new grant with Farm Fresh RI your SNAP benefits will DOUBLE this year.
