  • Wintertime Market Opening Day – Saturday Nov 5
    • 9am – 1pm
    • Farm Fresh RI’s Wintertime Farmers Market is opening for its 10th season! The largest market of its kind in New England, it will be open every Saturday through April 29, 2017 from 9am to 1pm — this year including both December 24 (Christmas Eve) and December 31 (New Years Eve). That means extra holiday shopping opportunities for consumers and more chances to support local businesses.
    • To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the wintertime market, Farm Fresh RI will be hosting special events, cooking demos, give-aways, and sales throughout the season. Ever growing, the 2016-2017 Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers Market will be home to a bustling community of shoppers, families, musicians, artists, growers, and artisans gathering over a shared interest in delicious locally grown foods.
    • The market will feature over 80 new and returning vendors selling a huge array of local products, from fresh produce, seafood, poultry, meats, and cheeses to baked goods, prepared foods, herbal remedies, seasonal flowers and wreaths… and so much more!
    • The Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers Market is located in two spacious hallways of the Hope Artiste Village at 1005 and 999 Main St., Pawtucket, RI 02860. The R-Line bus literally stops at the market’s front door. Multiple parking lots are provided for convenience, and street parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood. Ramp accessibility is located at the 999 Main St entrance and in the building’s center courtyard.
The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fantastical tale. Featuring the enchanting songs from the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder in addition to a host of fun new songs, Willy Wonka JR. is a scrumdidilyumptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone’s sweet tooth.
Willy Wonka JR. follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whomever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, but the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory – or suffer the consequences.

“Ben Minus Zoe Minus Ben” at The Artic Playhouse in West Warwick, RI
Daydream Theatre Company and The Arctic Playhouse are proud to present their fall show, “Ben Minus Zoe Minus Ben,” a play written and directed by Lenny Schwartz.  The shows take place on select days – November 3, thru the 12th, all at 8pm.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door or in advance on their website
Ben Minus Zoe Minus Ben is a science fiction story of sorts that involves a guy named Ben, who has been having visions of a girl his entire life. Yet, she doesn’t seem to exist. He assumes he is crazy…until clues start to surface that she may indeed exist. As he starts to unravel, Ben follows the clues towards the girl he dreams about…his one true love.
The Arctic Playhouse is located at 117 Washington St in West Warwick, about 15 minutes south of Providence and as with every show at the Artic Playhouse – there will be free cookies!
As I mentioned, the shows start at 8pm so you can hit up a local restaurant before the show, perhaps the Treehouse Tavern in Warwick which was recently featured on The Phantom Gourmet
