Weaver Library Farmers Market to give away starter kits
EAST PROVIDENCE, RI – The Weaver Library Farmers Market has rolled out a plant starter kit giveaway. Thanks to a generous donation from Christmas Tree Shop, the City of East Providence/Weaver Library Farmers Market will give away two free starter kits of vegetables, herbs, or flowers to anyone participating in the Farmers Markets until all the pallets are emptied. Visitors to the market, will receive a third kit free with any purchase from the Market and experience the many positive benefits of growing a garden.
The Weaver Library Farmers Market, which is open from 4 -7 p.m. on Thursdays during the month of August, offers fresh food and live music for a pleasant, lively, outdoor shopping experience.
Local farmers and producers will be selling vegetables, eggs, baked goods, honey, beeswax candles, cheese, salsas, jams and more. Stop by the Market Table for Sacred Cow Granola, Rhed’s Hot Sauce, and beautiful veggie-themed masks selling for only $2. Listen to a different band each week from the shade of the beautiful copper beech tree and enjoy a delicious dog from Pop’s All Beef Hot Dogs.
The 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 can double their SNAP. For every dollar you swipe, you will receive a FREE dollar in Bonus Bucks for fruits and vegetables.
With the goal of keeping everyone healthy, the Market is taking precautions to avoid the spread of the coronavirus and asking customers to plan their shopping trips with efficiency in mind. Everyone must wear a mask. The market is roped off and has one entrance and exit. Social distancing is a must, especially while in line. Sanitizer is available at the Market Table and the SNAP/EBT Table, and thank you for eating your purchased food at home, not at the market.
Weaver Library is located at 41 Grove Avenue, East Providence, RI. 02914. For the most current market information, see the Weaver Library Farmers’ Market Facebook page or call the library at 401-434-2453.
