Middlefield Farmers Market has announced that their weekly market at Mineral Lake will continue to support local vendors and community, but in a new location starting Saturday, August 31. The well-known community farmers market will change locations giving the surrounding businesses extra support. Middlefield Market will relocate in town at the corner of 87 and 608 in the Great Lakes Outdoor Supply parking lot. Vendors are supporting the move, hoping to make their products more accessible by passersby. All vendors will be making the move, and the market will be in this location until it ends September 28.
“I think the community has been very supportive of the market from the beginning. Many have found that the Middlefield Farmers Market is a great time to catch up with neighbors and friends while shopping for the coming week. While the initial location was successful, I felt it wasn’t supporting the community as much as it could have. I feel the new location will provide more available space, more parking, and better visibility for the Middlefield Farmers Market (MFM). The new location will add value to local businesses because customers visiting the market can check out the adjacent businesses before, after, or during their farmers market shopping experience, which is something that was lacking at Mineral Lake,” says Kaitlyn Sirna, Market Manager.
This week, at the original location in Mineral Lake Park, University Hospital-Geauga will be present to speak on the topic Cancer, featuring a ‘Colorectal Display.’ Visit their red tent for healthy information and contact information. RAD Granola and Master Gardeners will be joining us this week as well. Also local chef Blaze from Vinny’s (in Middlefield) will be cooking in the University Hospital Tent, using items purchased from the market that morning!
