New season around the corner

What’s fresh at the Seville Farm Market? Everything!

After a successful debut in 2009, the Seville Farm Market opens for a new season on May 29. This summer’s line-up includes a fresh-foods cooking demonstration and book-signing by legendary Northeast Ohio food writer Jane Snow (pictured at right) on June 26. Contestants from all over will go head to head with their best zucchini recipes in the 2nd Annual Zucchini Smackdown cooking competition on Aug. 21.

As always, the real stars of the Seville Farm Market will be the fresh fruits and vegetables, jams and jellies, honey and maple syrup, breads and pies, cookies and crafts, fudge, homemade dog treats & toys, candles, stained glass, natural fibers, perennials, hand-made furniture, and even knife-sharpening services, presented by our skilled local vendors.

Sponsored by the Seville Lions Club, the market takes place 9 a.m. to noon each Saturday through October, rain or shine. Vendors will set up in Stanhope Park and on West Main Street, which will be closed to traffic during the market. Adjacent parking is available at Seville United Methodist Church, located at 74. W. Main St., through its High Street entrance.

New this season, we are proud to partner with the HANDS Foundation, which provides free vouchers for fresh produce to qualifying Medina County senior citizens. Please visit http://www.hands-foundation.org/ for information.

Vendor opportunities are open not only to professional producers in the Seville area, but also to talented home bakers and crafters, as well as gardeners who have plants and extra produce to sell. We are always looking for new vendors and local entertainers. Please contact us for details.

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.

We are grateful to the many community sponsors and supporters who make the Seville Farm Market possible, including: The Seville Lions Club, the Village of Seville, and Seville United Methodist Church.
