Last, but certainly not least about the winter markets (including an outpost at AS220 on December 11 and 18 from 11 am to 2 pm), are the holiday and gift items. You can order a turkey (and find most of its fixin's); pick up seafood for special dishes (even the Seven Fishes Feast); choose Christmas trees, wreaths, or centerpieces; and shop for everyone on your list. Think jams and jellies, soaps and face creams, silk-screened Ts and pillows, hand-carved wooden toys, a box of truffles, a bag of spiced pecans, sausages or cheeses, locally-roasted coffee, Rhody-grown popcorn, and even dog biscuits, plus many more possibilities for local-grown, locally-made presents.
For addresses, hours, and season endings (all markets are closed on Christmas and New Year days), check out the following websites: farmfresh.org/food/farmers markets_details.php?market=29 for info on the Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers' Market, coastalmarket.org, and southkingstownfarmersmarket.org.
