It’s time for the Winter Farmer’s Market, each Saturday during the winter season from 11 am to 2 pm. This year, after a kerfluffle about locating at the ALCO building renovated by gentrification machine Struever Brothers, they have a new location at the Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket.
Here’s what you can find there:
