It’s finally fall, that beautiful time of year at URI perfect for our Local Food Market on the Quad!

Hey everyone! I’m Emily, and I’ll be blogging for Slow Food this Year!

Now that everyone is into the swing of this years fall semester, its definitely time to start enjoying some local slow food on the Quad. Although the awesome vendors certainly do a good job at serving up their yummy slow-food quick enough for us to grab in between classes!

The Coffee Guy’s Cold Brew is perfect for that crazy buzzy day when you need a pick me-up after lunch, and you can also get a cup of his hot coffee for just buck! Can’t beat it. My personal favorite is his refreshing iced-chai. Definitely remember your reusable mugs on Tuesdays to make sure you get a good amount of his brews while being kind to the earth. Then there’s the crowd pleasing Talulah’s Tacos, who uses awesome local ingredients from Pats Pastured and Schartner Farms! I highly recommend getting there early, before they sell out! Don’t forget the Great Harvest Bread Co. who I’m pretty sure sells the BEST chocolate-chip cookies ever.

Today I enjoyed 2 delicious pieces of Bravo Wood Fired pizza. Great option when you can’t scrounge up enough change, because they take cards using that handy-dandy new I-Phone app! Crazy right? But totally awesome.  I got a slice of kalamata olive and caramelized onion (yum!) pizza, and another of mushroom, red pepper, and caramelized onions. They always have such a great variety of toppings to choose from, and you just gotta love that portable wood-fired oven! How cool is that?! Of course, I had to wash my pizza down with an iced-chai. Delish!

We hope to see you at the market next Tuesday from 11-2pm, or better yet, every Tuesday until the last week in October!
