So, while I live most of the year in Brooklyn, NY, I am also incredibly lucky to spend my Augusts in Narragansett, RI which is about 30 minutes away from where I grew up in Warwick.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with that area, it is located in southern Rhode Island and is peppered with beautiful local beaches, natural landscapes, ocean views, and quaint shopping and dining areas. If you haven’t been, add it to your summer to do list!
We spend our days (after hitting the gym of course) relaxing on the beach and frequenting the local shops, restaurants, and attractions.
One hot August morning (today actually), my mom and I decided to visit a local farmers market that we had heard great things about.
The Farmer’s Daughter is located on RT 138 and, in good Rhode Island direction giving fashion, it is between URI and RT 4 (on the left if you turn off RT 4).
The Farmer’s Daughter
I expected a small farm stand with some veggies and a few flowers, but what we found was a pretty expansive farm (in my opinion with my limited farm experience!) that not only sold local veggies, but also flowers, plants, seeds, spices, and fruits along with having two separate gift shops featuring some Rhode Island made products!
Flowers and Plants
The first thing we checked out was all of the flowers and plants and for sale. They are all separated by type with super cute signs!
Then, we moved on to the greenhouses where they have many more plants, seeds, and herbs for sale.
Along the way we found some pretty little gardens, seating areas, fountains, trellises, and just beautiful scenery.
Not one to resist a shopping opportunity, we visited the two gift shops which just as pretty outside as they were in! They also carried some Rhode Island made soaps and lotions.
Fruit and Veggie Stand
Finally, we headed over to fruit and veggies stand. The workers, two incredibly friendly ladies, informed us that all of the veggies are grown in the greenhouses on the property while the fruits are brought in from other areas. Let’s just say, we stocked up!
All in all, it was a great trip to the farmer’s market! From the gardens to the shops to the fruits and veggies, it was a fun way to spend a morning. I would definitely recommend adding The Farmer’s Daughter to your list of places to visit in Southern Rhode Island.
And, by the way, the fruits and veggies were delicious!
