On Wednesdays, Memorial Boulevard comes alive with various vendors as part of the Aquidneck Growers Market. The weekly summer occurrence is one of my favorites and always serves as a reminder to eat fresh and embrace the ripe crops of our local farms and growers. The shaded walk features over 30 vendors ranging from shellfish, to flowers, pastries and fruit. I love meandering from tent to tent and finding provisions that might inspire a dinner dish such as clams from Matunuck Oyster Farm or savories from the infamous Olga’s Cup and Saucer. With August here, it reminded me to embrace our summer days and Wednesdays on Memorial must be a part of your summer schemes!
