    Make holiday shopping a truly local experience by visiting the Haymaker Holiday Markets on Saturday December 14 and 21 at the United Methodist Church at 1435 E. Main Street (S.R. 59) in Pierson Hall. The Holiday Markets run from 9am – 1pm with 40 vendors offering a great variety of local foods as well as handmade gift items such as upcycled bags, mittens, slippers, kids clothing and toys, ornaments, jewelry, treats for dogs and cats, bath and beauty products, candles, bee habitats, holiday decorations, and more. With three OEFFA certified organic farms growing incredible produce for the market year-round with high tunnel production, the fresh selection is remarkable for Northeast Ohio in winter.

    The market has launched the Lettuce Loot Program, for which we offer up to a $10 match with Lettuce Loot coupons for the purchase of fresh fruits, vegetables, and garden starts to SNAP customers who purchase tokens with their Ohio Direction Card. The $2 increment coupons will be offered on the first Saturday of the month, one set of $10 per customer per week until the monthly allocated funds are spent down.

    The Lettuce Loot program was created to help combat issues of food insecurity in Portage County and the city of Kent, and is also offered at the Downtown Ravenna Farmers Market on Thursdays from 11-2. The goal of the program is to introduce more families and individuals who may be struggling to afford a nutritional diet to the benefits of eating fresh fruits and vegetables. The first month of the program at Haymaker Farmers’ Market is being underwritten by the Kent Environmental Council, with subsequent months supported by the Sponsor the Market for a Day program.

    Anyone interested in sponsoring this program should contact market manager, Kelly Ferry at haymakermarket@gmail.com. The market will supply two tripods and 3-foot wide bulletin boards at the market info table and at the north entrance. Sponsors supply the print materials to promote their event, business, best friend’s birthday, or any other family-friendly happening to the many people who visit the market each week – all for $100.

    The winter market is still going strong with about 20 vendors, including two farmers bringing a nice variety of fresh green food grown in high tunnels. We’re at Junction 211 (corner of Cherry & Franklin Ave., 211 Cherry St.) every Saturday thru May 18 from 10am – 1pm.

    Save the date – February 2 – for our first Seasonal Food Swap!

    What the heck is a food swap? It’s an event that brings people together to trade their homemade, homegrown, or even foraged food items with one another. Join us for a fun afternoon of sampling and bartering – bring 5 – 7 items and go home with that many goodies made by other food lovers in the community. For more information, check out the Food Swap Network.

    Here’s what you need to do if you plan to attend.

    Here’s a sample swap sheet, which you’ll use to list your items and what you wish to swap with other attendees. Don’t worry, we’ll have printed sheets available at the swap.
