Rhode Island is home to 69,000 acres of farmland covering 10% of the state's land. You can imagine, then, that we've got some pretty robust farmers markets and farm stands sprinkled throughout the area. 

As the farmers market scene continues to grow, you can find vibrant, locally grown fruits, veggies and handcrafted baked goods in some of the state's most pristine parks, fields and gathering areas, all grown and made right here in Rhode Island. All you have to do is take your pick.

COVID-19 NOTE:

When you're ready, we can't wait to welcome you back to The Classic Coast. Rest assured, the safety and well-being of both visitors and locals remains our top priority.  All we ask when you land on these shores is that you play your part in keeping everyone safe. Please be kind and adhere to local guidelines.
