Little City of Greens

Neither snow nor rain nor heat stays urban farmers from their appointed rounds! Despite the dreary drizzle yesterday, the Little City Growers Cooperative was out in full force at the Armory Park Farmers’ Market, with glistening rain-washed greens and vibrantly colored beets, berries, and flowers. As featured in the Farm Fresh market preview, the co-op has recently added four new farmers to its ranks: Adam Graffunder from Florence & Manton Farm (named for its cross streets in Olneyville) and Fay Strongin, Tess Brown-Lavoie, and City Farm apprentice Laura Brown-Lavoie, all from Sidewalk Ends Farm on Harrison St. on the west side of the city. They join founding members Red Planet Vegetables, Scratch Farm, and City Farm in sharing market space at the Armory and pooling their produce for sale to area restaurants. Stop by next Thursday to pick up some of their items, grown right here in Providence! In the meantime, check out these smiling faces and their great selection of herbs and veggies:
