East Providence’s Weaver Library Farmers’ Market to Open on July 9th


East Providence, R.I. (June 17, 2020) – East Providence Public Library is excited to announce the opening of the Weaver Library Farmers’ Market on Thursday, July 9, 2020 at 4pm.

Although the current pandemic delayed its start by two weeks, it has not reduced the energy, creativity, and care the staff is bringing to the market’s 7th season. The 2020 lineup of vendors offering fresh local food, produce, plants, and more include Harvest Kitchen, Cedar Ledge Apiaries, Delfina’s Plants, Diggers’ Seafood, Blush Bakeshop, Mariska’s Confections, Pop’s Hotdogs and returning farmers Margarita and Teo Pons, Geek Gardens, Lazy Acres Ranch, and Martinellis. New to the Weaver Market are Daily Farm, Soul Fresh Proteins, Anouk’s Crepes, and WebeJammin.

Thanks to our farmers, vendors, musicians, and customers, the Weaver Library Farmers Market has become a favorite destination for many on a Thursday afternoon. Customers enjoy taking their time, relaxing, and catching up with neighbors. This year has to be different. Our focus must be on keeping everyone safe. To that end, we are taking every precaution to avoid the spread of the corona virus and asking customers to plan their shopping trips with efficiency in mind. State guidelines require staff and customers to wear masks. The market will be roped off and have one entrance and exit. Sanitizer will be available. All purchased food must be enjoyed at home. Although we cannot have food demos and children’s activities for now, we will have music and dance to make your shopping experience the pleasant experience it has always been. Saddle Up the Chicken will be sharing its fun sound with the market on July 9th.

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 can double their SNAP! For every dollar you swipe, get a FREE dollar in Bonus Bucks for fruits and vegetables.
