There’s always some mention of Rhode Island in each issue of Yankee, since it is subtitled “New England’s Magazine.” But the July/August 2011 issue can’t seem to spotlight enough of the Ocean State, especially the South County region. Christine Chitnis author of the recently released book Markets of New England, writes about “The Best 5 Farmers Markets in New England” and chooses the Coastal Growers’ Market at Casey Farm in Saunderstown as her favorite Rhode Island farmers market. Next up is Amy Traverso‘s story about the “Best Ice Cream in New England,” and that title is given to Susanna’s Ice Cream from Sweet Berry Farm in Middletown (also found at the Coastal Growers’ Market). Last, but not least, is the issue’s cover story on “The Beaches of South County,” which covers just about anything and everything from Westerly to Narragansett. The issue is out now or you can find a digital copy on the Yankee site.
