There’s a new market in town!

Lakeland Local Market

Update 06/01/2012 – This market is no longer operating

You can find this new market in the front parking lot of Lakeland Community College in Kirtland, Ohio  (7700 Clock Tower Drive, Kirtland, Ohio, 44094).  The market is a project of the Lakeland College Green Group.   The Green Group is a new student organization, of which Dana (my hubby)  is the president!  He has joined the ranks of those unemployed who are giving back to their communities by volunteering while looking for work or going back to school.

Green Group Officers, Dana on the far right

I was able to get away last Friday at lunch to check out their offerings.    Just a few vendors for now but as more produce ripens in Northeast Ohio you will be able to buy your favorite fruits and vegetables here.  On this day there  were some yummy baked goods and beautiful arts and crafts. Bookmark their web site and check each week for featured vendors, musical entertainment and product demos.   After the photos I will list these vendor contact info.  Now, walk with me…..

For the kiddies, The Balloon Man!

This concludes our shopping expedition for today!  I hope if you live in the area or are visiting the North Coast this summer you will stop by the Lakeland Local Market.  And if you are a vendor looking for a spot to sell, click over to ther group’s web site for contact info.  It’s going to be my Friday lunch hour spot every week so I’ll see you there!

  1. Great photos and I’d say a nice selection of offerings given it’s just beginning. I’d like to see some of those jams and baked goods in our area.

    I hope you have a great season and thanks to Dana for lending a hand.
