Local Potato Farmers Team Up

With Local Spuds Ready: Now

Harvest season is upon us, and there is no time like the present to strengthen the local food movement by visiting your local grocer and purchasing Rhode Island and So. Eastern Massachusetts grown potatoes.

Farm Fresh Rhode Island, RI DEM Division of Agriculture and WJ Canaan Produce Co. and participating farmers have teamed up to introduce you to the best potato on the market now.

Introducing: The RI Royal

Whether you prefer your potatoes, mashed, fried or scalloped, this potato is up to the task! The RI Royal potato is a creamy, white flesh potato. A favorite of local chefs and consumers alike.



Not too long ago, the fields of Aquidneck and Sakonnet bustled with potatoes that fed New England and beyond. The Ocean State’s coastal climate and soils still are fertile ground for spuds.

Our participating farmers have over one hundred years of family farming experience between them.

Participating farmers include:
