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 in the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This market goes indoors from November through April to Old Trail School.
Countryside Farmers’ Market at Highland Square operates June-September at Will Christy Park.
The markets collectively serve over 60,000 customers each year, and the vendors earn over $1M in annual gross sales.
The purposes of the Countryside Farmers’ Markets are 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.
Market sponsorships are now available.
