Countryside Farmers' Markets
At nine o'clock on Saturday morning the cowbell rings. Within seconds, a stampede of visitors rushes into the market and customers greet farmers at their favorite stands. The farmers' market is one of the best ways for small-scale, local farmers to earn a living and gain publicity. The Countryside Farmers' Markets bring area farmers together to sell and promote locally-grown food, and were one of the first of these markets within a national park. Visit one of the Countryside Farmers' Markets to sample a diverse selection of delicious produce grown by Cuyahoga Valley farmers. Don't buy food from strangers!
