Soooo... WHAT? Four years in Providence, Rhode Island, and I never saw or heard of Providence Open Market? What kind of craft fanatic/RISD student was I? Someone please tell me this is the first year they're doing it. Please. Someone. I mean, I can't even excuse it by saying, "Well, I wasn't there over the summer!" because I was on multiple occasions for the weekend, and it runs into October. Whatever. Either way, here's to Cianci (yo Buddy! I hear you're out!) or Cicilline, or whichever of those snazzy mayors gave this the thumbs up.
On the bright side, I'll redeem myself this summer. Devon and I have been severely craving some Bob and Timmy's (dinner) and Pastiche (ohmygoodness dessert) on Federal Hill, so we're going back to the East Coast to indulge. Oh yeah, and see my family and his sisters, too when we swing down to New York. Now that I've found out about this amazing little bit of yumminess in downtown, I may have to schedule an extra day in. If you're in the area, definitely check it out for me, and give me a report!
