Dare we say our favorite part about warmer days here on the Classic Coast (aside from sipping summer sangria on our rooftop bars and sticking our toes in the sand on our beautiful beaches) is the return of our robust roster of farmer's markets and farm stands. Longer days bring with them a vibrant bounty of fresh, locally grown fruits, veggies and delicately crafted baked goods; all grown and made right here in Rhode Island. All you have to do is take your pick.
