Weaver Farmers’ Market features September bounty and the fiddlin’ of Hank & Tom

EAST PROVIDENCE, RI – The Weaver Library Farmers’ Market (located at 41 Grove Ave.) invites residents to join visit the market every Thursday for the month of September to enjoy the outdoors and September’s beautiful bounty.
September 3, 2020 marks the ninth Farmers' Market, which means that there are only three weeks left to the season. There’s a great lineup of fun planned for the September 3, 2020 market. Residents will be able to enjoy the tunes and the fiddlin’ of Hank & Tom. Free plant starter kits for next year will also be made available.
The city encourages residents to support the community by attending the market in support of the small, local farmers and businesses who grow and produce vegetables, plants, fish, eggs, pastry, honey, jams, salsas, sauces, nuts, granola, hot sauce, peanut butter, candles and soap. These items are produced locally in Rhode Island.
Although the market has not had food demos and children’s activities this summer, it continues to feature great music to make market visitors’ outdoor shopping experience a pleasant one.
Speaking of great music, on September 10, 2020, the Market will host a drumming circle at 4 p.m. and a dance performance with Sacred Flames and Friends at 6 p.m. The folk duo Cardboard Ox returns in September and the popular Kleyla Family Band will close out the Weaver Farmers’ Market season in style.
The Weaver Library Farmers’ Market welcomes customers with SNAP/EBT, WIC, Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program coupons, and credit or debit cards. Thanks to a grant from Farm Fresh RI, SNAP customers get a FREE dollar in Bonus Bucks for fruits and vegetables for every dollar they swipe.
As always, the Market follows basic rules to keep everyone healthy. Visitors are required to wear masks, physically distance, especially while waiting in line, and wash or sanitize hands before and after the market.
