    Thank you to everyone who came out to visit the first holiday market last week – it was a wonderful turnout, with lovely music and a festive and convivial atmosphere. We return again this week for the final market of 2011 with more of the same wonderful local products, before we take our shortest winter break ever. We’ll be back at Kent Roosevelt High School on March 17, ready to fill your plate with the best local food in Portage County.

    In case you missed it, Lisa Abraham wrote a great piece about preparing a full holiday meal with the food she purchased at last week’s holiday market in this week’s food section of the Akron Beacon Journal. Be sure to click through the photo slide show – they’re gorgeous, then scroll down to some delightful recipes that you might want to incorporate into your holiday meal planning when you shop the market this week.

    Remember, the market table will have roomy shopping totes for sale that will make an excellent gift bag to fill with local goods! We accept the Ohio Direction Card and credit/debit cards at the market info table – swipe your card and receive tokens to use to make your purchases.
