Fisherman’s Park Location

Fisherman’s Memorial Park is located at 1011 Point Judith Road, running adjacent to Galilee Escape Road, on the southernmost side of Narragansett. Fisherman’s Memorial Park is a well-known local attraction and is popular for its walking trails, picnic areas, and camping grounds, suitable for tents and RVs. If you are planning a camping trip in the area, timing your trip during a weekend will give you the perfect opportunity to partake in the Sunday-morning farmer’s market. Enjoy the market in the morning and take a stroll or have a picnic with the family in the afternoon.

Taking a Break from Eating Out

Vacationing with a family isn’t cheap, and the price of eating out three meals a day certainly doesn’t help your wallet! And after a few days of dining out, many start to miss the familiarity of home-cooked food. Even with a fully-equipped kitchen in your vacation rental, if you’re always on the go, it can be hard to find the time or energy to cook – not to mention finding the ingredients you need in the first place!

Narragansett farmer’s market is the perfect place to find everything you need to cook for yourself in a vacation rental. Water-watering fruits – apples, watermelons, pears, peaches, melons – are available seasonally: delicious treats to escape the summer heat. An assortment of vegetables, both local and exotic, can be found at the market, including cabbage, carrots, leeks, tat soi, squash, and a myriad of other leafy greens. It’s the perfect place to stock up on vegetables for delicious stir fry and perhaps a way to encourage the kids to try something new!

Fun Family Activity

Honey, herbs, dairies and cheeses, meats, baked goods, jams, and spreads – there’s a little bit of everything at Narragansett farmer’s market. If you happen to bring the family pet along, there is even catnip and an assortment of baked goods for dog’s, provided by Jack Snack’s, A Dog Bakery. No matter what your tastes, there is something for everyone – even the furry member of the family! And to complete the whole experience – after loading up on groceries and indulging in a few sweet treats along the way – the family can enjoy a picnic at Fisherman’s Park, enjoying freshly-bought purchases, and take a scenic stroll on the park’s many trails.

Support Local Business and Farmers

In addition to getting a taste of local culture, your business supports the local economy, allowing farmers and entrepreneurs to continuing supplying quality products. Seven Stars’ Bakery, Healy’s Farm, and Chris and Christina’s Garden Market (among many more) are a few top suppliers of the market’s products. For many such businesses, providing healthy, great-tasting food is their top priority, utilizing sustainable farming methods as opposed to large-scale agriculture and avoiding harmful pesticides that are commonly used.

Even if you opt not to cook for yourself, you can choose to dine at restaurants in Narragansett that do buy locally, including Trio, Pancho O’Malley’s Mexican/Irish Restaurant & Pub, Mariner Grille, Point Judith Country Club, and West Bay Gourmet. So, consider not only searching for great food but doing so in a way that gives back to the community.
