While most farms are closing their gates for the winter, Mount Hope Farm is just starting to heat things up.

With vendors ranging from Windmist Farm, The Local Catch, Provencal Bakery, The Coffee Guy, Wishingstone Farm, Aquidneck Honey, Farmacy Herbs, Wicked Natural, Primo Granola, Mapleville Farm, Aquidneck Farm and Reynolds Farm, you will not be short on farm fresh food to enjoy.

The market is open on Saturdays from 9am-1pm, and accepts cash, debit, credit and Fresh Bucks. Market attendees can find apples, broccoli, cabbage, grapes, beans, mustard greens, potatoes, gourds, mushrooms, herbs, honey, cheese, eggs, milk, meat, jams and jellies, seafood and much, much more. When you’re done with the food, you can take a walk around the 127 acres of farmland. So, if you’re shopping for dinner or just want to wander around the barn, Mount Hope Farmers Market is a great way to spend a Saturday this winter.
