About Countryside Farmers' Markets

Countryside Farmers' Markets (CFM) are vibrant farmers' markets established and managed by Countryside. We have three seasonal markets: Howe Meadow in Peninsula, nestled in the middle of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park; Highland Square, a thriving, walkable community in West Akron; and during the winter at Old Trail School, a private school within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park that emphasizes sustainability throughout its curriculum. Our Public Market is year-round, indoors, in the Northside district of Downtown Akron. 

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

Credit Card, EBT and Produce Perks     

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! 

As part of the Ohio Nutrition Incentive Network, and through support from Produce Perks Midwest, Ohio Department of Health, GAR Foundation and Tuscora Parks Health & Wellness 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 “Produce Perks" 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 Produce Perks tokens (up to $20), is provided for purchases of fresh fruits and vegetables.
