ABOUT THE MARKET
Aquidneck Community Table’s Growers Market provides easy access to seasonal, regionally-grown food and greater awareness of the benefits of eating fresh local foods for our health, the strength of our local economy, the viability of agricultural life, and the future of our earth.
Our marketplaces feature both organic and conventionally-grown products that include fresh vegetables, cut flowers, herbs, fruit, plants, eggs, breads, baked goods, meats, seafood, cheese, salsa and prepared foods such as soups, vegan foods, Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern cuisine. All markets feature a changing roster of local artisans and food businesses.
We encourage shoppers to arrive by foot, bike, and scooter, although there is free parking available. With a wide variety of vendors and regular attendance by hundreds of shoppers every week, these are lively places to visit. When visiting our markets, please note that pets are not permitted in the market square.
We participate in the Fresh Bucks system that allows customers to buy market tokens with debit, credit, and EBT cards for purchasing from all vendors. The same system allows us to offer Bonus Bucks (an additional $5 free for every $5 withdrawn) for fruit and vegetables to SNAP program customers. Click here for more information on this program. Many market vendors are also able to accept WIC and Senior Citizen vouchers; check at our Welcome Stall to learn more.
Our efforts to keep reusable material out of the municipal waste stream is supported by sales of our market tote bags — which saves using plastic bags, now banned on Aquidneck Island. ACT fully supports efforts to reduce single-use material. We provide a Bag Share Bin at our markets, for those who forgot to bring their reusable bags.
