About Countryside Farmers' Markets

Countryside Farmers' Markets (CFM) are vibrant, producers-only farmers' markets established and managed by Countryside Conservancy. Our markets are held in three unique locations: Howe Meadow in Peninsula, nestled in the middle of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park; Highland Square, a thriving, walkable community in West Akron; and Old Trail School, a private school within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park that emphasizes sustainability throughout its curriculum.

Please click through to individual market pages for more information about what you will find at each market.

Credit Card, EBT and Carrot Cash

You can use your credit cards to purchase market tokens in $5 increments. Although there is a $1.50 fee associated with credit card token purchases to help cover the cost of the machine and transactions, these tokens never expire, are good at all market booths, and the vendors are able to give change if purchases are less than $5.

Countryside Farmers' Markets proudly accept Ohio Direction Cards! Through support from the Wholesome Wave Foundation, we also offer a dollar-for-dollar incentive for SNAP customers, providing additional dollars for purchases of fresh fruits and vegetables. This program, called "Carrot Cash" is available at all three of our market locations.  SNAP customers swipe their cards at a terminal located at the market's information booth.  Customers select the amount of dollars to be taken off their SNAP card, in exchange for tokens in $1 increments.  The tokens are good for the purchase of all SNAP eligible items. Additionally, a matching amount of Carrot Cash tokens  (up to $15), is provided for purchases of fresh fruits and vegetables.
