EAST PROVIDENCE, RI – The Weaver Library Farmers Market will be open from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 20, 2020 offering 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, fish, salsas, jams and more. Come and see the local bounty of summer and meet new vendors too. The public is encouraged to stop by the Market Table for Sacred Cow Granola, Rhed’s Hot Sauce, Hilly’s Soaps, Market bags and beautiful veggie-themed masks selling for only $2. One of our favorite local musicians, Rumford’s Justin Marra, returns to the Market and will be performing tunes in a blend of Americana, Folk, Blues and Rock.

Visitors to the market may still receive two free pots of flowers, herbs and vegetables just for coming to the Weaver Library Farmers Market. A third starter kit is offered free with any Market purchase.

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 swiped.
