June 1, 2012–Cleveland Clinic—Cleveland–North Union Farmers Market is pleased to open its Wednesday market in partnership with the Cleveland Clinic and the Fairfax Renaissance Development Corp. on June 6, 2012, at 10:30am. Located on the Crile Mall on the Cleveland Clinic Campus, the market will feature vendors with local, Ohio-grown produce, food products and more.

Beginning at 10:30am and running until 1:30pm on Wednesdays June 6 through October 24, the market will open with fresh strawberries! Local Farmers will unveil their fresh grown produce, dairy and meat products, honey, and maple syrup. Bakers will present delicious breads and pastries, and artisan food producers will feature items such as cheese, jellies, mustards, pasta and more.

Live music by Panic! Trinidad Steel Drum Band will make this occasion fun and festive.  Stop by for lunch prepared by LOCAL restaurants! Free one hour garage parking is available.

North Union Farmers Market is proud to announce that we will be accepting SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) Cards at the Cleveland Clinic 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. WIC and Senior Coupons also accepted.

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 Cleveland Clinic opens on Wednesday, June 6th from 10:30am to 1:30pm, rain or shine, at the Crile Mall on East 100th Street near Carnegie Ave. It continues every Wednesday through October 24th, 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.
