Bouquets, Baseball and Buyers

While the calendar may say summer starts June 24th, summer in Newport kicked off in style on Memorial Day weekend, with the City by the Sea in full swing! The month of June brings beautiful bouquets (and flower shows), delicious fruits and vegetables, and an urge to get out there and enjoy the sunshine.

 

Strawberry picking season is upon us. Checkout the Quonset View Farm or the Sweetberry Farm websites for the most up to date picking schedules. If you don’t want to do the work, just stop into their farm stands and grab some of the freshest produce on the island!
