Resources for chefs
The seaside city of Newport, Rhode Island, is filled with beauty and culture — not to mention plenty of good things to eat! Whether it is fresh Atlantic salmon, locally grown oysters, seasonal produce or pasture-raised, grass-fed local beef, at Brown & Howard Marina we want to help connect you to local providers who can provide fresh, seasonal, local ingredients to give your cooking a special Rhode Island flourish!
We are fortunate to have access to two incredible networks of farmers – Farm Fresh Rhode Island and Pat’s Pastured / Farmers Unite. Both entities recently started to offer home delivery and we’ve coordinated with them to ensure that they can deliver to you dockside, at Brown & Howard Marina. We have also partnered with some small local providers that deliver exclusively to our marina for your convenience!
Take a look at the resources that we’ve assembled for you – and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
The freshest ingredients delivered dockside through Farm Fresh RI
Captains and crew at Brown & Howard Marina are invited to join wholesale buyers in using Market Mobile services to get fresh food from local farms delivered to your boat dockside. We are proud to support the farming community by providing an outlet for the food that is being grown — as well as for you, our guests, to have a safe way to purchase fresh, local food.
How Does Market Mobile Work?
First, create an account. Under “Business Category,” feel free to choose “Advocate.” Once signed up, you can return to the main Mobile Market page on the Farm Fresh RI website to log in for future orders. Click the “Market Mobile” link and choose food from the local farmers and food makers who have listed their items for sale. Be sure to click the “Update Order” button when you are finished adding items, and then “Buy Now” to make your purchase.
When Should I Place My Order?
Orders placed Mondays will be delivered to Newport on Thursdays (you will be notified directly).
Orders placed Thursdays will be delivered to Newport on Tuesdays (you will be notified directly).
The order form becomes live at 8:00am on Mondays and is intentionally inactive outside this ordering window. This allows local farmers and food makers time to update what they have listed for sale based on their most current inventory. Please note that during this time of heightened demand, it is recommend to place orders as early as possible. Should you encounter any issues, contact (401) 312-4250 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The delivery address is 33 Brown and Howard Wharf. The driver should park in the lot as close as possible to the dock, near the “Freedom” building. List YOUR phone number as the number to be contacted upon delivery. A secondary point of contact can be Charlie Moore, Marina Manager, at (401) 477-9723.
Dockside Delivery from Pat’s Pastured and Farmer’s Unite
Guests at The Marina at Brown & Howard Wharf are also invited to order directly from Farmers Unite – a group of farmers and fishermen who have come together to streamline local delivery! Your toughest choice will be deciding whether you want to cook lamb chops, scallops or filet mignon for dinner.
How Does Dockside Delivery Work?
Create an account on the Pat’s Pastured website. When prompted to provide your zip code, enter 02840. You will then provide your name and email address. Select “home delivery.” Now you’re ready to browse the online store, which features a fantastic local variety of meat, seafood and produce, and place your order. You’ll receive an estimated order total based on approximate weights.
When Should I Place My Order?
The ordering window opens at 12 a.m. on Wednesdays and runs through 12 p.m. on Fridays. Deliveries to Newport will take place the following Thursday (you will be notified directly via email). Order ahead and plan your menu accordingly!

Delicious ice cream delivered!
If you want to incorporate ice cream into your decadent dessert, we’ve got good news for you! This summer we partnered with local ice cream shop Clementine’s of Middletown, who will provide dockside delivery once a week to our docked guests. All deliveries will be kept cool inside our dock office, so no worries about when you’re able to pick it up!
