The Mentor Farmers Market returns to Civic Center Park on Friday afternoons from 3-7 PM. The season will run from May 30 to September 19. Click here to watch a video preview of the 2014 Mentor Farmers Market.
The market offers a wide assortment of locally grown fruits and vegetables — and some certified organic — along with flowers, plant starts, herbs, honey, jams and jellies made from wine, home baked breads, olive oil, vinegars, organic cheese, eggs and a bevy of cookies, breads and cupcakes. The market is held rain or shine. There will be NO market on July 4 and August 22.
