If a drizzle of local honey on a fresh-baked scone is your idea of heaven, you can find heaven on earth on Wednesday and Saturday mornings from 9 to 11:30 am at the Block Island Farmers’ Market. (Word to the wise, come early before the scone lady sells out.)

With its many fruits and veggies, artisan cheese spreads, salsas, shellfish and more, the Market is a veritable festival for foodies. But wait, there’s more.

Find us at Legion Park on the West Side.
