We are Northeast Ohio’s largest network of certified producer-only farmer markets – and the undisputed leader in Cleveland’s local food movement.
With nine markets serving communities across the region, we meet the growing demand for locally grown food, plants, and flowers — all raised using environmentally sustainable methods.
More than 300 local family farms, artisans, and other small businesses regularly participate in our markets.
Yes, we provide you with wonderful venues to buy fresh, local foods – but we do so much more!
- We teach consumers and school children about the taste and health benefits of fresh, locally-grown seasonal produce
- We partner with local chefs to provide instruction on how to prepare meals using local foods
- We invigorate and grow our regional economy by creating vibrant community spaces
- We enable small, sustainable farms to sell directly to consumers
North Union was cited as one of America’s Top 10 Farm Markets in the ‘Big City’ category — out of more than 7,500 entries. Our smaller markets were named among the Top 10 Small Markets by American Farmland Trust and our Cleveland Garlic Festival twice received the Dominion Foundation’s Community Impact Award.
