This season at Highland Square has many special treats in store, and that starts with opening day!

First, we'd like to welcome a new vendor and one that's returning after a hiatus from the markets. This year, Oak Tree Farms Hydroponics will be joining us. They are a hyper-local farm specializing in lettuces, greens, herbs. Also, Mud Run Farm will be joining us again this season after a few years away. In addition to Certified Organic produce and eggs, they will be bringing several grains and flours later in the season. And if you're missing out on your croissant fix on Saturday mornings, fear not! Summit Croissantswill be returning to Highland Square along with many of your favorites from years past.

Opening day will be launched with live music by classical guitarist Jim Marron- thanks to ArtsNow for their support in making this a reality. Additionally, Crafty Mart will be hosting an activity booth for kids to create marbled paper. Finally, you won't want to miss out on the after party at Akron Art Museum from 7-9pm, complete with local snacks prepared by Chef Ashley of Fire and Ash Catering.
