WARWICK, RI — This week’s  Warwick Weekend events begin with Goddard Park’s Farmer’s Market and Roger Williams’ Food Truck Friday,  the final days of Quahog Week, a fundraiser 5K and an emerging artists exhibit.

The weather for this round of Warwick Weekend events promises to be kinda cloudy with temps in the mid to high 60s, according to the National Weather Service.

Warwick Weekend Events Friday:

Quahog Week Final Friday Quahog Week highlights the many restaurants, markets, fishermen, and food-based businesses committed to growing Rhode Island’s local food economy, with special emphasis on wild harvest clams. Restaurants and markets across Rhode Island will celebrate this sustainable resource and its year-round availability by featuring a quahog dish on their menu. Three local spots are participating: Iggy’s RI has a stuffed quahog special. Iron Works will be featuring their Rhode Island Stuffies, made with Chourico, fresh herbs, Old Bay, and sourdough stuffing – yum! And Dave’s Fresh Marketplace offers fresh shellfish, local, fresh seafood, and prepared seafood dishes.

Goddard Park Farmer’s Market Every Friday through Columbus Day Weekend, RI Grown, DEM’s farmer’s market program, hosts farmer’s market at Goddard Park selling delicious and freshly-harvested local foods direct from the farm to your dinner table.

Roger Williams Food Truck Fridays The Carousel campus at Roger Wiliams Park Zoo has a lot of open space and rolling hills shaded by trees, the perfect spot to grab dinner from a food truck and listen to music and entertainment during the park’s Food Truck Fridays event. The outdoor food truck festival at Carousel Village starts at 5 pm. Attendance is free, just pay for what you eat and drink from an ever changing rotation of more than 15 food trucks each week.

If you miss this one, don’t worry. They’re going on every Friday till the fall.

At this time, there is no known cure for Landon’s condition, but the physicians at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are working tirelessly to find the most successful treatment plans available and, ultimately, a cure.
