Support Countryside Farmers’ Markets

Countryside began managing farmers’ markets in 2004. Today, we operate three Farmers’ Markets in Summit County, Ohio.

Countryside Farmers’ Market at Howe Meadow:
This market is located in the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park, operating May – October and moves indoors to Old Trail School, November – April.

Countryside Farmers’ Market at Highland Square:
This market is located at Will Christy Park and operates June – September.

The markets collectively serve over 60,000 customers each year, and the vendors earn over $1M in annual gross sales.

The purpose of the Countryside Farmers’ Markets is three-fold:

  • Provide a venue where local farmers, producers, artisans, and artists can sell their high-quality products directly to the consumer.
  • Connect consumers with a wide array of locally grown and produced foods and goods in a setting that allows them to interact directly with the grower or producer, thereby re-connecting them directly to the source of their food.
  • Create a space that allows for community interaction and enjoyment, informal public education and civic engagement.
