Providence Open Market

105 posts in this topic


i agree with jef. I love the open space there. I think its a great location for outdoor festivals, parties, balls, events, markets etc. I'm not loving the surface parking, and i am pretty sure that the landscaping in containers doesn't by any stretch cover the requirements for even a temporary parking lot, so i'd like to see that rectified by springtime (and i'm happy to make suggestions!) if there isn't a deal inked by then to build something. Some creative lighting, some benches, some programing at lunch time in the nice weather, a hot dog cart--it could be post office square at Milk Street...

We have been working with the South End Open Market to bring the *new* Providence Open Market to the Grant's Block site beginning on May 12, 2007. It will run every Saturday through the end of October. It should be pretty exciting!

sounds like something a nonprofit like mine (and others) might like to have a table at once in a while...how would one go about getting hooked up?

Non profits can set up for free at the Market. Do any of you have ideas on how to get in touch RISDI students / alumni? Are there any blogs, forums etc?

My list above was certainly not meant to be comprehensive, I was posting places then had to move on to something else.

Basically, just walk up and down the streets of Downcity, there are plenty of shops that should want to support something that will bring more people to the area.

Wow. These are all places I haven't heard of. I need to get west more.

Not exactly downtown, but White Electric would be a good place to hang a flier too.

K.

ps-oops - totally missed the last few posts in this thread. :whistling: So, yeah, I second the West End places!

The WBNA is a good resource for getting info out to the West End. Also, did someone already suggest the Decatur?

I should assume you're working with Farm Fresh RI on getting produce & other local food vendors, right?

Marketmanager- I wanted to send you a personal message, but I was denied. Are you accepting PMs?
