CaseyFarm.jpg While my garden looks as if it has seen better days, there are many working farms that are still producing fresh, local foods at a staggering rate.

Casey Farm in Saunderstown, R.I., which overlooks Narragansett Bay and was once the center of a plantation that produced food for local and foreign markets, is one farm with a must-visit market. Located minutes from Newport, Casey Farm raises organically grown vegetables, herbs, and flowers for subscribing households in a Community Supported Agriculture program. How its crops can benefit others is through its Coastal Growers Market, which operates Saturdays through October, offering meat, seafood, fruit, flowers, and artisan products in collaboration with other local farms. No need to suffer the taste-less produce from supermarket chains just yet!
