Farmers market to open in Brunswick

BRUNSWICK — The Brunswick Area Historical Society is hosting a weekly farmers market, beginning Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., at Heritage Farm, 4613 Laurel Road.

“Can you think of a better location to host a farmers market than on one of Brunswick’s oldest farms?” said Jeff Neidert, spokesperson for the society. “We have some initial vendors lined up for the event, and hope the participation grows as the word spreads about its success.”

The market will be open every Sunday through Oct. 6.

Neidert said the market hopes to draw local and regional vendors of fresh produce and other handcrafted items for area residents.

The historical society also is encouraging local growers who lease community garden plots on the site to try their hand at selling some of their extra bounty, he said. He added that the society plans to sell pumpkins in October from its own patch.

Medina County now boasts three farmers markets. The other two are open Saturdays — on Medina’s Public Square and Seville’s Maria Stanhope Park.

Both opened May 25.

Medina’s market, which features more than 70 vendors, is open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday through Oct. 26.

The Seville market is open 9 a.m. to noon and averages eight to 12 vendors each Saturday.

Neidert said those interested in selling at the Brunswick market should contact the historical society by emailing brunswickareahistory@gmail.com or by regular mail to: Brunswick Area Historical Society, P.O. Box 714, 4613 Laurel Road, Brunswick, OH 44212.
