Howe Meadow Farmers' Market Cancelled for May 6th!

05-May-2017

 

In coordination with our Market Manager and Cuyahoga Valley National Park , it was determined that the field and parking conditions at Howe Meadow are too wet to safely handle the market activity. And there is additional rain in the forecast. This is a call that we never take lightly, knowing the negative economic impact cancelling a market has on our farms and vendors, and how much you the consumers rely on the market to get access to fresh, locally produced food. We take human safety and natural resource impacts very seriously, and we would not cancel if it were not necessary!
So please forgive us and plan to come out in full force next Saturday and show your farmers and producers some big love!

UPDATE: Due to the unfortunate cancellation, our vendors have product that they need to unload! Here are few that have mentioned specific things:

Ovenly Delights, our gluten-free baker, has her line-up available for order and pick-up at her house - contact Karen at 330.940.2129.
Baker's Fresh Produce and Honey has LOTS of lettuce and asparagus that they have harvested. Contact them directly at bndbaker7@gmail.com.
MorningSide Farm has lots of veggies ready to go. Email George at george@rempro.net.
Brunty Farms farm store will be open 9am to 8pm tomorrow. Stop by to get your favorite cuts!
Ms. Julie's Kitchen has her popular waffles en masse! Head to her spot to get yours!

This cancellation impacts all of our vendors. If your favorite vendor/product is not listed, please feel free to reach out to them to see how you can support them.
