Farm Fresh Rhode Island's Wintertime Farmers' Market at Hope Artiste Village (1005 Main Street, Pawtucket  10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.) opens tomorrow - a relief since the last couple of Saturdays have been cold and/or windy at the outdoor market. There are  new vendors and the product array is expanding to include fresh pasta, vegan chocolates, etc. Opening day will feature pickle judging - local picklers and fermenters will submit cukes, sauerkraut, whatever you can brine or ferment - for judging by local chefs and editors between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. But the BIG NEWS is the addition of a new market day. Beginning November 10, the market will be open every Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Look for all the info here:

Also opening tomorrow is the COASTAL GROWERS' MARKET (Lafayette Mill, 650 Ten Rod Road a/k/a rte 102, North Kingstown  10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.). The market has an impressive group of vendors and, as at the Pawtucket market, there is plenty to eat right on the spot. Go to the website for more details
