Where to Shop

You can use your coupons at any of these market locations. Note that each market has different days/hours of operation. Summit Lake Farmers’ Market & Barberton Farmers’ Market are accessible on public transportation (click for metro map).

Additional Shopping Information
The farmers and food producers who sell through Countryside’s markets are all from within a 75 mile radius. This means the food you buy is fresh and local, and the fruits & vegetables available are dependent on the growing season. For a general guide to Northeast Ohio seasonality, click here.
