BRUNSWICK — Brunswick now has a farmers market.
The Brunswick Area Historical Society hosted its first farmers market Sunday at Heritage Farm, 4613 Laurel Road.
There were about seven vendors at mid-afternoon, selling fresh produce and handmade goods.
“We figure once the season gets going, we’ll have between 15 and 20 vendors,” said Joyce Petchler, treasurer for the historical society.
One of the vendors was April Barszcz, of Real Veggies Farm in Lafayette Township, who was selling lettuce and jellies. Barszcz said she grows some of her produce at the farm and some at home in Brunswick, so she was glad to see the market start up.
“For I’ve been hoping,” she said.
The market will be open noon to 4 p.m. Sundays through Oct. 6. The market will encourage the community gardeners at the farm to sell their extra produce, alongside local and regional vendors.
The market will feature karaoke July 14, and other music is planned as well for future weeks.
Vendors pay $5 a week to use the space, and they can come any time, organizers said.
Those interested in selling at the Brunswick market can contact the historical society by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to: Brunswick Area Historical Society, P.O. Box 714, 4613 Laurel Road, Brunswick, OH 44212.
The market joins two others in Medina County, in Medina and Seville, both of which are Saturdays.
