This year, North Union Farmers Market is pleased to participate 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 $10) 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 at Chagrin Falls opens on Sunday, June 3rd from 10am to 1pm, rain or shine, on Franklin Street in front of Bandstand Triangle Park. It continues every Sunday through October 21st, supplying locally grown fresh produce from Ohio farmers.
North Union Farmers Market is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to champion the local foods of Northeast Ohio and promote their environmental, economic and health benefits by connecting certified producers with consumers through a network of markets.
