Our outdoor market on tree-lined Memorial Boulevard in Newport resumes on June 3rd with our safe shopping protocols in place. Please review our protocols on our website: aquidneckcommunitytable.org and don’t forget to wear a face covering.
ACT’s Aquidneck Growers Markets serve as sales outlets for almost 50 farmers and small food businesses within 50 miles of the center of Aquidneck Island, important to the growth of a regional supply chain and the survival of many local farms.
SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), WIC (Women, Infants and Children Program) and Senior Citizen Farmers Market Vouchers are all accepted at our markets in order to ensure that fresh, healthy foods are available to all, no matter their financial circumstances.
We participate in the Fresh Bucks system that allows us to offer Bonus Bucks (an additional $5 free for every $5 withdrawn) for fruit and vegetables to SNAP program customers.
Please visit our website to review our COVID-19 farmers market protocols. Please observe these protocols to ensure the market operates in the most responsible way possible.
