We were pleasantly surprised by the number of vendors! Here’s a short list of our favorites:
Narragansett Creamery: The Best Ricotta in the World. That’s what the woman standing next to us said. And… I imagine she’s right. It was definitely the best I’ve ever had. That night, Melissa made us some spaghetti with her sauce, and a little ricotta mixed in. It really was unbelievable. But probably the best way to really get the whole ricotta experience was when we mixed it up with a little sugar and dipped strawberries in it. Wow.
Allen Farms: Have you ever had pea greens? Neither had I, until I stopped by this booth. These are from snow peas, and we were won over immediately. We scooped up a container, and also a pot of cat grass for Dave – which he loves. We used the pea greens in a salad with spinach, kalamata olives, cucumbers and feta from Narragansett Creamery. We’ll definitely be buying these again.
Barden Family Orchard: We grabbed some apples – I wish I could remember what kind they were. Guess we’ll have to go back and get more.
Stony Hill Cattle Company: While Melissa wandered over to Purple Pear of Providence, I took some time talking to the ladies here – and ended up with a Porterhouse steak. It’s in the freezer still, but I’m going to grill it up soon.
