North Union Farmers Market
The 2019 market season is officially open at Crocker Park. Local Farmers will showcase and sell their fresh grown produce, meat and dairy products. Bakers will present delicious artisan breads and pastries. Fine artists and craftsmen round out the festive market Clevelanders have grown to love!
North Union Farmers Market is proud to announce that we will again be accepting SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) Cards at the Shaker Square Market. SNAP recipients may bring their Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards to the farmers market and obtain tokens which may be used to purchase fresh, local vegetables, fruits, dairy products, meat products, honey, preserves, baked goods, plants used to produce food at home and much more. SNAP recipients should first visit the “Market Information” table to receive tokens before purchasing items.
North Union Farmers Market is also participating in the Produce Perks Incentive Program of the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Food Policy Coalition. The incentive is a dollar-for-dollar match to every dollar spent (up to $20) using an Ohio Direction Card at the market. There is no minimum purchase amount to qualify for the incentives and as the name suggests, Produce Perks are only good for purchasing fruits and vegetables. All other tokens purchased with the Ohio Direction Card are good to use on eligible items at the market.
North Union Farmers Market runs at Crocker Park on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm, rain or shine, in front of Dick’s Sporting Goods through December 14th.
