Hello Summer In North East Ohio

Hello Summer in North East Ohio! Farmers Markets are identified as an essential business that may be open with the required safety and social distancing guidelines in place. Although many traditional summer events in our corner of Ohio have been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, Seven Hills residents and neighbors can still look forward to getting their fresh, locally grown produce and other products at the Seven Hills Farmers Market. The Seven Hills Farmers Market will be opening Thursday, July 2 at 4:00 pm and continuing every Thursday until October 1, 2020.

In 2020, the Seven Hills Farmers Market will be celebrating its six-year anniversary, and we are thankful for the community support that got the Market to this point. We are thankful for our farmers that are still planting crops, tending to livestock, repairing machinery, pruning orchards, tapping trees and more, rain or shine, virus or not, to bring food to our table. We appreciate our vendors that are even now planning for the market and the special items they will be creating for us to enjoy. We love all the time and energy our weekly food trucks put into their specialty menus. We are indebted to our customers that support the market through their weekly purchases, sharing a post, or telling a friend about us.  And we acknowledge the foresight of our sponsors who believed in our mission and have provided the funds for advertising and upgrades and continue to do so for 2020! Thank you Taleris Credit Union, Inc. and Vince Hrobat Insurance Company, Inc.!

To ensure the safety of all (vendors, staff and customers) the Seven Hills Farmers Market will implement the following modifications recommended by CDC guidelines:

  • Mask/cloth face covering will be required for all vendors and staff
  • Vendor stands spaced six-feet apart
  • Relentlessly cleaned display tables
  • Hyper-vigilant vendors and staff
  • Six-foot distancing between people
  • Only whole, uncut produce and prepackaged items will be sold
  • No sampling of any food will be permitted
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at the information booth
  • No touching of products, vendors will bag all items 
  • No reusable bags
  • No live music

Please know, your backing in 2020 will be needed more than ever. The Seven Hills Farmers Market is committed to its mission. We offer a direct-to-customer marketplace opportunity to our residents and neighbors as well as providing support our local farmers and small businesses. We fill a vital role in our community. We thank you for your understanding as we adapt to these rapidly changing conditions and thank you for your continued support. We are all in this together and we will overcome the challenges we are currently facing. Hope to see you this summer at the Seven Hills Farmers Market! Stay Healthy
