Schoolyard Market is engaging visitors as a part of our nonprofit mission, helping locally-based food and beverage businesses start up, scale and thrive. Market-goers will be delighted to find a stellar cast of vendors selling the newest and freshest offerings from New England-based farms, food and beverage producers, bakers, food trucks, and more.
Unlike traditional farmers markets, Schoolyard Market is aims to provide an interactive experience, designed to engage shoppers in more than just making purchases.
“The Schoolyard Market consumer is actually part of the incubation process by providing input and feedback to these budding food entrepreneurs. We have had many companies crowd source and perfect their recipes, packaging and branding during the Schoolyard Market season. That makes this market unlike any other local food experience.”
— Lisa Raiola, Founder & President of Hope & Main
Market-goers can take part in a variety of activities all season long. Have a say in product development and taste testing, be first to learn about new products and new business launches. Get sage gardening advice, wellness and nutrition lessons, cooking demonstrations. Kids will be right at home this season, too, with monthly activities including competitions, games hands-on crafts and learning, and more!
Lots of customer favorites are returning the the Schoolyard for another season, but many new companies are in the mix. This fall, Blount Fine Foods has generously sponsored the market season, and will also take part in vending, using the marketplace to test recipes and packaging for new locally-inspired products and concepts.
“As a mature and successful food company with roots in Warren, RI, we have a responsibility to mentor local food start-ups and support their growth. This creates a more vibrant, sustainable food economy for our state and the region.”
–Todd Blount, President of Blount Fine Foods & founding Board member at Hope & Main
