There are a slew of things we absolutely love about summer. The sun, for starters. And with the sun of course comes the warmth, which then comes the things that grow in said sun and said warmth. You see where we're going here?

 

The summer season brings farmers markets galore, perfect for getting your hands on an ample supply of fresh & local fruits, veggies, meats, herbs and dare we say, some sweet baked goods; all grown and crafted right here in Rhode Island.

 

Take your pick.
