Farmers Market in Shaker

When: Wed., Aug. 10 2011

"It's about getting local food into the community and getting the community into local food," says Stephanie Allen, associate pastor at the First Baptist Church and founder of Shaker Heights' recently launched farmers market. It all happens today from 4 to 7 p.m. in the church parking lot. There you'll spot growers like Blue Pike Farm and New Creation Farm, as well as vendors with vegan products, baked goods, pastas, and ethnic cuisine. And if all that farm-to-fork bounty makes you hungry, stick around for the $5 dinner created from food sourced right from the market's stands. The market continues every Wednesday afternoon. The church is at 3630 Fairmount Blvd.; visit — Munnell
