Welcome to Harvest!
A local market in the Heart of the 5th Ward of Newport, RI
We provide high quality local produce and products from our Island, surrounding waters and neighboring communities.
Formed to provide relief, to our fellow locals, from mass production and striving to keep our community healthy, active and engaged.
What We Do
Harvest provides a year-round marketplace where local farmers, growers, artisans, bakers and entrepreneurs can consign their produce or products directly to the consumer. The year-round marketplace will offer vendors an additional retail sales outlet while the consignment structure is anticipated to yield higher profit margins for consigned than other retail distribution models. Higher margins, in turn, will facilitate producers’ sustainability and growth, while providing consumers access to quality, healthy, locally sourced food.
Harvest will hold supportive events at locations in the Newport, RI area to promote access to healthy food, agriculture and a thriving local economy through sourcing products locally and having a sustainable community. To maximize our impact, we may seek to collaborate with other community organizations in furtherance of the Corporation’s purpose.
Harvest is a non profit market where local farmers, artisans, bakers and entrepreneurs can consign their products directly to the people. A type of business where the goal is not profit maximization, not increasing shareholder wealth but to let the producers, the farmers, the bakers, etc. gain higher profits than traditional sales methods.
