Friends Market information
Lonely Planet review
Immediately south of College Hill is Fox Point, the waterfront neighborhood where the city’s substantial Portuguese population resides. Though gentrification has taken place with influxes of Brown University professors and students and artists from RISD, you can still find an old-world style grocery like the Friends Market tucked in among the trendy coffeehouses, salons and galleries. Most activity in Fox Point centers on Wickenden St with its restaurants, art supply store, incredible eyeglass shop (Gregory’s Optical) and several home-furnishing boutiques.
