Living in the smallest state at times has its perks. Rhode Island has such a strong sense of community statewide, especially during the summer months when the weather’s nice. For example, local farmers and artisans get together weekly–and sometimes twice a week–to share their produce and talents with the communities of the Ocean State. I put together a few great farmers markets around the state, and be sure to check out the ones in your area and beyond!

Providence & The East Side
