Farm Fresh Rhode Island Asparagus Fest 2022
May 1 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Join us on a very special farmer-led tour of the asparagus fields — and pick your own pound to bring home! We’ll enjoy local wine and beer, and a wide array of delectable asparagus dishes created by talented chef-instructors from Johnson & Wales University, College of Culinary Arts.
On the tour, we’ll learn how asparagus is propagated, grown, and maintained on this 150-acre fifth-generation family-run farm — located where the four towns of East Providence, Barrington, Seekonk, and Swansea meet. After the tractor-pulled farmer tour through Four Town Farm’s asparagus fields and pick-your-own opportunity, we’ll return to the gorgeous farm stand for music and refreshments.
Reminder: This is a casual indoor/outdoor event at a farm. We recommend dressing comfortably, with shoes appropriate for walking in the asparagus fields.
Asparagus Fest is a benefit for Farm Fresh Rhode Island, a nonprofit local food hub that’s been connecting local farmers and eaters since 2004. Advance tickets only—tickets not sold at the door. This event is rain or shine. Children under age 12 are welcome to attend at no cost.
