Eating local when you’re traveling just got easier. Plan a trip to Bristol, R.I., a charming seaside town, and you’ll have access to plenty of delicious and local seafood, meat, and produce. You and your family can sleep at an historic inn on a 127-acre farm, collect eggs in the morning for breakfast, and shop the farmers' market — all before heading out to visit a living farm museum.

Where to Stay:
Governor Bradford Inn is a 1745 country inn at Mount Hope Farm, with an Old World feel, farm and bay views, walking trails, goats and chickens, an edible garden, and a farmers' market. The inn is decorated in antiques and reproductions, and serves a hearty locavore breakfast daily. Guests have a choice of four bedrooms, each with a private bath. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Where to Eat:
With help from Market Mobile, a "farm to biz" delivery service, Bristol’s restaurants have access to more than 50 local farms and food purveyors, and plenty of seafood from the local waters.

DeWolf Tavern showcases new American cuisine prepared by chef Sai Viswanath with an East Indian/Asian twist, the menu features local ingredients. The menu is a showcase of local fish, oysters, clams, and lobsters, and dishes include Rhode Island mussels in coconut broth, a lobster popover, and a wide array of sandwiches and pizzas made from the Indian naan bread that’s cooked daily in the Tandoori oven. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Persimmon serves creative American fare from three-time James Beard Award finalist, Champe Speidel. The menu combines locally and globally sourced ingredients and emphasizes seasonal ingredients, all with some unusual flavor combinations, including Narragansett Bay razor clam with Japanese octopus ceviche in a citrus, ginger, herb and vegetable marinade. Additional dishes may include asparagus soup, sourced from a nearby farm, with locally raised egg and ham; roasted Rhode Island veal loin with a variety of seasonal vegetables; and tautog (black fish) with herb and butter sauce. Atlantic halibut and local John Dory fish are also offered. Dinner only.

The Beehive Café is a quintessential cozy café with local ingredients. The menu features lamb, beef, chicken and eggs, dairy products, homemade sausage, and bacon, and a case full of tasty baked goods and breads that are made in-house. There's great Fair Trade coffee at breakfast. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Where to Visit:

Mount Hope Farm. In front of the Governor Bradford Inn, the farm features a blue-eyed goat buck and his family, hens and chickens, and a large, rustic barn. 250 Metacom Avenue

Coggeshall Farm Museum. A living history farm museum from 1799 that showcases heritage farm animals and heirloom plants. Culinary features include a cooking demo in a hearth using 18th-century recipes, and a pantry of Old World utensils.

Where to Shop:

8 Best Things to Do in Bristol, Rhode Island

Bristol is one of New England's loveliest coastal seaports, located within Bristol County along the state's Atlantic Ocean coastline. The city is best known as the home of the United States' longest continually-celebrated Independence Day festivities, which date back to 1777 in the year following the country's Declaration of Independence. Visitors can enjoy Independence Day festivities at beautiful Colt State Park, which is located on the grounds of the estate of industrialist Samuel Colt. The lovely East Bay Bike Path stretches between the city and Providence, constructed along the path of an abandoned railroad right of way. CDC information for travelers.

Rhode (Island) Sodas

It&rsquos the ultimate locavore test. Sure, the butter and cheese in your fridge is local. So&rsquos the bread and milk. But are your soft drinks? Here&rsquos a refreshing trip around the state.

Empire Bottling Works Sarsaparilla
This classical prohibition-era flavor is recreated here in a recipe that&rsquos definitely made to stand the test of time. This is no ordinary would-be rootbeer. The delicious and spicy background notes of ginger and clove make this Bristol-made beverage a clear winner in anyone&rsquos book.

Granny Squibb&rsquos Classic Lemon Tea
This is no Lipton Iced Tea we&rsquore talking about here. Providence&rsquos Granny Squibb&rsquos is like the best iced tea you&rsquove ever had, and that&rsquos no lie. With only five ingredients this iced tea is big on flavor. It&rsquos got a true steeped tea essence with a hint of lemon that just can&rsquot be beat.

Yacht Club Birch Beer
The bubbliest beverage of the bunch, Yacht Club&rsquos version of birch beer is definitely refreshing. The North Providence soda has got a light birch beer flavor that&rsquos not too sweet, and is dangerously addicting. Just one sip, and you&rsquoll be a fan for life.

Del&rsquos Lemonade
This tasty bottle of lemonade reminds us of the famous frozen stuff. Sweet and refreshing with just the right hint of lemon bite that keeps us coming back for more, even without the zingy bits of lemon.

Bibbs Sparkling Blackberry Juice
Made with all natural blackberry juice and sparkling water, this tangy Block Island treat packs a flavor punch. It&rsquos tart yet drinkable and would make a great mixer for a tasty cocktail or is fabulous alone as an invigorating refresher.

Iggy&rsquos Raspberry Lime Soda
This bright red soda - from Iggy&rsquos restaurants in Warwick and Narragansett - looks like a freeze pop and tastes like one too, in the best possible way. This sweet treat reminds us of a hot summer day and would match perfectly with a bag of Iggy&rsquos signature clam cakes, any time of year.

PatchCooks: Readers Share Go-To Weekend Breakfast Recipes

When I was a new mom, I had images of laid-back weekend mornings cooking elaborate breakfasts of bacon, eggs, fresh-squeezed juice, the works.

Perhaps even dabbing the little one's nose with a bit of homemade pancake batter while they cutely (and neatly, ha ha) whisked away at my side. So homey! So virtuous! So. not happening.

Now I just pray everyone will sleep really late.

Weekend mode means keep the cold cereal in an obvious spot on the counter and hold the belief six is plenty old enough to pour your own milk. (She's quite handy, that kid.)

But I still have days where images of motherly perfection creep back in, especially once September comes. Curious if I was alone in my autumnal return to the hearth, I asked Patch readers for their best weekend breakfast ideas.

As always, you are an amazing and generous bunch:

Stephanie West Stellwagen and Lauren Ayres of Greenwich, CT both decided to take on the humble egg: Lauren gives us a decadent frittata that also manages to use up leftovers (score!) while Stephanie goes a little lighter with egg whites and almond milk.

Laura Crosbie of Hazlet, NJ shares her "Cupcake Omelets." They freeze great and can take you right into the work week.

And what would a recipe round-up be without Nutella? For that we can thank Amanda Bloodgood, also of New Jersey, by way of Freehold and Jackson.

We're no test cooks though—that's where you come in! Test it, try it and tweak it your way. Just be sure to share your recipes, tips, tricks and photos back.

PatchCooks is a new nationally crowd-sourced feature that gathers favorite recipes from Patch readers coast to coast each week on a particular theme.

This week's theme was "weekend breakfast"—delicious things you love to make when you have a little extra time.

Next week's theme: Ridiculously easy weeknight dinners, emphasis on "Yeah, I can make that with three hungry kids hanging all over me, easy."

Where to Buy Fresh and Wild Mushrooms

Mushrooms are becoming more popular in the food world now that farm-to-table cuisine is booming. The best places to buy fresh wild mushrooms are local, such as at a farmer's market or specialty grocer. When that's not possible, though, there are some online mushroom sellers that provide quality products for your mushroom-buying needs.

If you're unsure of which mushrooms you should buy, it's always helpful to speak directly to the farmer or seller for local recommendations. Feel free to share recipes or personal taste preferences with the farmer or seller. This information will impact which mushrooms they may recommend for your specific taste preference or recipe. Wild mushrooms are seasonal and that affects both their availability and price, so be prepared for some sellers to not have certain varieties at certain times. If possible, it's best to eat what's in season, as it will taste best and likely be the most affordable option.

Some mushrooms are highly toxic, so wherever you choose to shop, always be sure of the seller's credentials when buying wild mushrooms. Do not harvest wild mushrooms unless you are with someone who can safely recognize the difference between safe and poisonous mushrooms.

If you are unable to find fresh mushrooms at your local market, many online retailers sell and ship local mushrooms. Another option is to purchase dried mushrooms, which can easily be rehydrated and used in many tasty recipes.

Get Ready To Grill!

Warm weather is nearly here, which means it is time to dust off those grills as we prepare for another grilling season!

Grilling is a spring and summer staple in the Northeast — and yet making the most of this outdoor appliance's potential can feel intimidating. That's why we want to share three super helpful tips to observe as your prepare to break out your backyard BBQ and suit up for another "let's get ready to grill" season!

Tip #1: Some Like It Hot

We know enough to preheat an oven, but preheating a grill is just as important! Placing meat on your grill too soon, before the grates are hot enough, can change the flavor of whatever it is you are cooking — and not in a good way. If you are working with a charcoal grill, you'll want to look for a thin gray coat of ash on the coals before grilling. If you have a gas grill, consider preheating on high, which can take approximately 10-15 minutes. When it comes to preheating your grill, whether it is charcoal or gas, patience is a virtue, but it's worth the wait.

Tip #2: Get Versatile with Vegetables

Grilling isn't just for meat-eaters! If you are strictly a vegetable lover, grills can work some serious magic when it comes to cooking up your favorite veggies. Grilling vegetables enhances the flavor in a way that other forms of cooking cannot. The best part? It's easy, with no fuss, no muss! Create a simple lidded pot by folding aluminum foil around carrots, whole onions, or broccoli for a steamed effect, or place veggies like peppers, zucchini, and eggplant (to name a few!) directly onto the grill. Your vegetables won't need more than a sprinkle of salt or a favorite seasoning after you remove them. Even just a drizzle of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon can send the flavor soaring!

Tip #3: Grill Your Fish

Grilling fish on an open flame can feel challenging, but consider this a time to experiment with some delicious potential! Firmer fish like salmon work beautifully on the grill and result in a tasty, crispy skin. Ready for a pro tip? After you've placed your fish on the grill, avoid moving it since movement can cause tearing and breaking of the fish. Another thing to note is that fish generally cooks quicker than meats like steak or chicken, so you'll want to keep your eyes on it.

We hope these tips have been a helpful inspiration to get out there and grill this season!

As always,we invite you to leave the BBQing to us. Take a look at our quick and easy curbside menu filled with delicious grilled meats, BBQ dishes, and veggie options. We are happy to serve up spring and summer dishes for any gathering!
