Coastal Growers Winter Market: This takes place in North Kingstown but its so worth the trip while we wait for the EG Farmers Market to return! With live music and lots of vendors, it’s kid-friendly and you can get lunch too. Here’s the list of vendors. At the Lafayette Mill, 650 Ten Rod Road. From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The film follows Robinson from small-town churches in the New Hampshire North Country to Washington’s Lincoln Memorial to London’s Lambeth Palace, as he calls for all to stand for equality. All are welcome. 6:30 p.m.
