Farmers Market Back for Second Year

The market returns Saturday with crafts, sweets and fresh produce (can you say "strawberries?")

The North Canton Farmers Market returns for its second year, and this time it's bringing with it more fresh produce like strawberries, peas, rhubarb and onions.

Although for better visibility, you'll still find all the action behind Main Street Grille this year.

Organizer Dan Tullius of Tullius Art & Design said the community is already abuzz in the days leading up to the market's opening.

"People are starting to think about the market and getting out and getting fresh produce that’s locally grown," he said. "It seems to be picking up."

The market already is promoting vendors, new and old, on its Facebook page.

You can catch the market from *8:30 a.m. to noon each Saturday through Oct. 13.

Some vendors appearing again this year are Happy Poppy, which makes girls' dresses, Aunt Lula’s greek pastries and New Berlin Pies (which always seemed to sell out before Editor Morgan Day could get her hands on one).

New vendors include Orangewood Bakeshop (think Hungarian cookies, nut rolls, poppyseed rolls and a variety of jams and spice bags).

And did we mention you'll also see honey and eggs from Creekview Ridge Farm

Tullius reminds market shoppers that produce will be limited at first, but the selection will grow as the season goes on. And, new vendors always are welcome. Just click here to find the vendor application. The fee is $95 for the season or $6 per week.

He invites the community to stop out on opening day and keep coming back.

"It's another reason for people to get out, meet their neightbors and enjoy fresh produce.”
