The Newport Farmer’s Market

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


What would summer be without its farmer’s markets? We’re fortunate in Newport to have one very conveniently positioned just up the hill from the beaches and right before you arrive at the center-of-the-action-corner of Memorial Boulevard and Bellevue Avenue. A nice, long grassy spread, perfect for picnicking.


It’s the place to be on Wednesday’s from two to six in the evening! Aside from the obvious draw of gorgeous vegetables, baked goods and seafood, the Newport Farmer’s Market (officially known as Aquidneck Growers’ Market) is a great place to…

Grab a quick homemade lunch — tacos, galettes and creative burgers…


Pick up clams, mussels and oysters for dinner…


Satisfy a sweet tooth (ice cream sandwiches and exotic pastries).



Or, sip a refreshing glass of luscious lemonades.



Plus, be inspired for entertaining ideas (like food trucks) or culinary resources for a one-off evening supper or lunch for house guests.


Enjoy this peek at Newport — a visual as well as a tasty treat!





Dogs welcome!


A chic conveyance.


Aah, to be in Newport in the summer.
