Newport, Rhode Island’s Aquidneck Farmers’ Market
Last Wednesday I spent the afternoon at the Aquidneck Growers' Wednesday Farmers Market, in Newport, Rhode Island and had such a great time. I was impressed at how nicely laid out the market was as well as having such a nice variety of vendors. I had a wonderful slice of wood oven pizza. Bravo Wood Fired Pizza actually brings an actual wood oven to the market and bakes pizzas all afternoon long. Here is the link for Bravo Wood Fired Pizza http://www.bravowoodfiredpizza.com/Pages/default.aspx .
What I was most impressed with, however, was Olga’s Cup & Saucer. Olga had an amazing selection of baked goods that is better than most famous bakeries that I have visited. Olga’s booth was constantly jammed with people buying bagfuls of delicious treats. I had a chocolate cookie and a macaroon. Both were superb! Olga’s Cup & Saucer is out of Providence and has her deliciousness in my favorite Providence restaurant, La Laiterie/Farmstead Cheese. Here is where you can find Olga’s Cup & Saucer online http://olgascupandsaucer.blogspot.com/ and http://www.facebook.com/pages/Olgas-Cup-and-Saucer/200452426644338 .
If you find yourself in Newport on a Wednesday I highly suggest that you make a stop into the farmers’ market. Parking is tight, but not impossible. http://www.farmfresh.org/food/farmersmarkets_details.php?market=2 Aquidneck Growers' Wednesday Farmers Market
