Fresh fruits and vegetables, jams and jellies, honey and maple syrup, baked goods and hand-crafted furniture are some of the things shoppers will find this summer at the inaugural Seville Farm Market, which opens for the season on Saturday, June 27.

Sponsored by the Seville Lions Club, the market will take place 9 a.m. to noon each Saturday into the fall, rain or shine. Vendors will set up in Stanhope Park and West Main Street, which will be closed to traffic during the market. Adjacent parking is available at Seville United Methodist Church, through its High Street entrance.

The market is open not only to professional producers in the Seville area, but also to local home gardeners who may have extra produce to sell. To encourage participation in the market’s first year, registration is free, but all vendors must register before being permitted to sell. Contact John Gladden at 330-769-1428 or sevillefarmersmarket@gmail.com to receive a registration form.

The Seville Farm Market also will feature local entertainment and a refreshment table sponsored by Seville-area community groups who will provide coffee and snacks in exchange for a donation in support of their work.

The purpose of the Seville Farm Market is to provide area residents with locally produced foods and handcrafted items; to support local agriculture and encourage home gardening; to promote community spirit; and to foster a greater connection between consumers and those who grow their food.

The Seville Farm Market gratefully acknowledges the support of the Seville Lions Club, the Village of Seville, Kurt’s Auto Parts and Seville United Methodist Church.
