Friday Farmers Market in Kennedy Plaza, 11am-2pm

The Friday Farmers Markets in Kennedy Plaza kicked off last week. Today is Friday and the Farmers Market starts in less that half an hour. The Farmers Market has moved across the plaza this year to Fulton Street, and the folks at Greater Kennedy Plaza have this handy little map to illustrate the fact:

Farmers Market Has a NEW location this year! The Downtown Market is now on the Fulton Street side of Kennedy Plaza. It’s a popular market for people who work downtown, RIPTA riders, and visitors to Providence looking for a fresh taste of RI. Grab lunch at the market and pick up fresh groceries for the weekend. Vendors this year include: Absalona Greenhouse, Big Train Farm, Blue Skys Flower Farm, Misti, Simmons Farms (now producing their own goat cheese!), The Cupcakerie, plus lunch options from New Dawn Catering, Tina’s Jamaican and Mama Kim’s Korean BBQ!

I’m going to head down there shortly to get lunch from Mama Kim’s.
