Farmers Markets

and Farm Stands

 

This is the time of year when first harvests of fresh fruit and vegetables from our local farms are hitting farm stands and farmers markets.

Blackstone Valley has an abundance of markets and farm stands so you never have to go without fresh veggies.

We recently visited Goodwin Brothers Farm Stand in North Smithfield and picked up some tomatoes and raspberries as well as a loaf of bread from a local bakery. There is nothing like fresh veggies in your salad.

Other farm stands to check out are:

 

·     Jaswell Farm, Smithfield

·     Old Orchard Farm, North Smithfield

·     Butterfly Farm, Lincoln

The coronavirus is taking over as the deadliest virus outbreak in recent American history. Data from Johns Hopkins University shows the number of reported deaths in the U.S. went over 675-thousand on Monday. Around the world, COVID has taken the lives of nearly five million people.       The Biden administration wants to raise the refugee admissions cap for fiscal year 2022. The State Department announced a recommendation to move the target from more than 62-thousand to 125-thousand in October. That number was a goal of President Biden during his campaign for the White House.        Harvey Weinstein is pleading not guilty to sexually assaulting multiple women in Los Angeles over a nearly decade-long period. The disgraced movie mogul made the plea Monday to eleven different counts. Weinstein was extradited to Los Angeles from New York July 20th, where he had been sentenced to 23 years in prison for raping an aspiring actress and a criminal sex act against a former production assistant.        The Los Angeles Lakers are making history with their latest jersey patch sponsorship deal. The LA Times reports the Lakers have agreed to a five-year agreement worth more than 100-million dollars with Korean foodmaker Bibigo. The Lakers had previously worn Wish on their jerseys since the NBA introduced jerseys ads in the 2017-18 season.        An extremely rare first-edition copy of the U.S. Constitution is heading to auction and it won't be cheap. Just one of eleven surviving copies, Sotheby's auction house in New York is expecting a bid of up to 20-million-dollars for the rare document. In a press release, Sotheby's described the document as "rarer than the first printing of the Declaration of Independence."
