Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014:

Farmer’s Market, 9 a.m.

Here’s a great earth-friendly way to support local business: Head to Pawtuxet Village, and leave the car down near Pawtuxet Park [on the Warwick side of the bridge]. Then, take a leisurely stroll through the business district and work up an appetite climbing the hill on Broad Street before arriving at the Pawtuxet Farmer’s Market at Rhodes-on-the-Pawtuxet. Load up your canvas bags with locally grown produce and other items, then glide back down Broad Street and over the bridge for a late breakfast/brunch/early lunch along the water.

Cash, credit, debit, EBT/SNAP, WIC and Senior Coupons accepted.

Oakland Beach Cruise Night, 4 p.m.
