The East Greenwich Farmers Market closed shop for the season last week, but nearly all the vendors will be reassembling for an indoor market in the auditorium at St. Luke's Church starting Monday, Oct. 21.
"I'm just trying to keep everyone going and support the community," said Forsythe.
The indoor market will feature EG regulars such as Pat's Pastured, June Love's English Cakes, and the Coffee Guy as well as a few new vendors.
Silk Tree Farm from Charlestown will be selling candles and soaps and will be bringing two goats to the market every week. Earth Essence Herbals and Hickory Hill Farm are also participating.
Forsythe said there will be face painters. In addition, there will be live music from 3 to 5 p.m. and a storyteller from 5 to 6 p.m. weekly. In the dining room below the auditorium, artists will be featured.
Patrick McNiff of Pat's Pastured said he was very happy about the winter market.
"It is a great opportunity for EG residents to see the bounty of our farms even in the winter," McNiff said. "A lot of folks think we all shut down for the winter but we are all hard at work raising and selling our products. We hope to have a great turn out for the market. Think about it – roast chicken, with local potatoes and squash with a fresh slice of local bread for dinner or for breakfast our eggs and bacon with locally ground coffee and a muffin. Tell me that doesn't sound awesome for a winter feast."
