When: Sat., June 2 2012
The Coit Road Farmers’ Market celebrates its 80th anniversary during market hours today, Saturday, June 2, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The celebration will include activities for all ages such as entertainment, games, information tables, health screenings and food. Founded in 1932, the market is located at the intersection of Coit and Woodworth Roads near East 152nd and provides access to affordable locally sourced food to the residents of Greater Cleveland. You’ll find fresh vegetables and fruits, spices, eggs, cheese, local baked goods, honey, jams and locally crafted items. Prices at the market are reasonable especially when compared to suburban farmers’ markets. The Market is open Saturdays all year and Wednesdays from 10:00AM to 1:00PM April through November. It is the only fully enclosed farmers market operating at a single site year in Northeast Ohio. Some of the farmers have participated for three generations. Only locally grown or crafted products are allowed to be sold at the market. You can meet the grower or preparer and know the source of your food and how it is processed.
