If you haven't been to The Arcade, Downtown PVD in a while, here a really terrific reason to revisit - a winter farmers' market every single Sunday now thru December 18th. I mean, as you probably already know too damn well, parking in the city can be a major pain in the *ss, but NOT on Sunday. As a matter of fact, we found a nice (#free) spot in the lot right next door. (Look Ma, no tix!)
The market runs from 10am to 2pm. Go early, for first pick of everything and elbow room to move or take a few snaps for Insta. There's also a lot more than veggies. Yeahhh, yesterday on the opening day, we spied a Blue Skys Farm stand with some luscious looking (grown chemical free) greens and eggs, but there were plenty of other neat and noteworthy booths/local brands, including: Jack's Snacks (Remember them from the doggie bday cake blog? We HAD to pick up two bags of treats for Duke and Louie.), gluten & dairy free treats from Two Little Buns Bakery (Photo above. They were kind enough to pose while I took a few dozen #photos via the VSCO app, which is a great upgrade for the camera on your smartphone, whether you're a blogger or not.), cranberries, seafood, jewelry, vintage (courtesy of Carmen & Ginger), and more/more/more.
All this, plus old and new Arcade classics like New Harvest and Rogue Island (The #brunchgram I posted on Insta is above.). And I hear they'll be adding diff. vendors every weekend, so every single Sunday gives you a chance to discover another local biz or two that you were previously unaware of. Sweet!
Ciao for Now,
