Providence Farmer's Market

Hope St. Farmer’s Market [Providence, RI]

Hi friends! We had the best weekend, and one of the highlights was the farmer’s market. In my opinion, the Hope St. market in Providence is our state’s best. There’s a TON of stands and lots of variety between each one. If you are local, I highly suggest you make this a priority before it packs up and takes things indoors after summer/early fall. I ended up spending a little more than I planned on, but there was just soooo much good stuff. Plus, it was like 90 degrees out (it’s been crazy humid here – and lightning storms like whoaa) and all I could think of was making a huuuuge tomato, corn, and cucumber salad for lunch. But then there was fresh kale… and the prettiest purple eggplants, and squash, anddddd purple potatoes! And fresh bread! And everything else under the sun that I needed to have.

Isn’t it glorious how stunning real food is? Like really. So here I am, happy with my purchases:

And my favorite pineapple bag, which I snagged from HomeGoods. And here’s a secret – that watermelon is yellow on the inside. Yellow!

So take a look at what my Saturday morning haul looked like, and enjoy the veggie and fruit porn below ;)

First thing’s first – Wildflour Vegan Juice Bar and Bakery is just a stroll down the street. So naturally, homemade coconut yogurt + granola for two. Coffee for him. Carrot, apple, and ginger juice for me.

One happy plant-eater, with her yellow watermelon and a bag full of goodies. Life is so so good.

So it didn’t take long for me to get home and admire all my treasures from Hope St. Pretty much immediately – I just walked onto the porch, snapped a pic, and then got to making a refreshing salad to beat the heat.

The above is real simple – cut up your veggies, slice the corn raw, right off the husk. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar. Topped with a little pink himalayan salt. Incredible.

Thanks for listening to me ramble about my farmer’s market fun – I just love this one so much, and I think everyone in the area needs to visit. You won’t be disappointed.

I hope you have a gorgeous day, and stay cool! xx bianca
