Countryside began managing farmers’ markets in 2004. Currently, we manage two summer markets and one winter market in the greater Akron area.
The markets collectively serve over 50,000 customers each year, and in 2014 the vendors reached a collective milestone of over $1M in annual sales. 2018 is our fifteenth season in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and our fourteenth season in Akron.
Our markets are producer-only; vendors are required to be growing, producing or making the products offered at the markets.
The purposes of the Countryside Farmers’ Markets are three-fold:
Market sponsorships are now available for our Summer Countryside Farmers' Markets at Howe Meadow and Highland Square and support the behind-the-scenes and on-site hard-work of Countryside Farmers' Markets and help ensure their sustainability.
