Like the beauty for which its named, Pearl Market is a real gem. And, lucky for us all, it returns on Friday, May 24 for another season. So, get ready for the very freshest of produce, the yummiest of treats and most fabulous of local goods. You may remember that the Market was relocated last summer. But, things get back to normal with Market days bringing Pearl Alley (with overflow on Gay Street) to life withe eight new farmers.
So, mark your calendars for Tuesdays and Fridays through October 11. The Market runs from 10:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. Make sure to stop by for live food demos on the last Friday of each month. And, because the Market spills over on to Gay Street, you can grab lunch at local restaurants. What kind of produce might you find at the market? Well, keep an eye out all summer long. Spring kicks off with favorites like asparagus, rhubarb, kale, greens, radishes, strawberries and raspberries. You can check out what’s in season all Market long on Pearl Market.org.
Oh, do you love baked goods? We thought so. Check out 8 Sisters Bakery, BYOB Bakery, Food for Good Thought, Great Harvest Bread, Ohio Pies, The Baker’s Rack, or The Fat Girl Bakery. Yes, you can keep your goody goodness going.
Once you’ve loaded up on sweetness, don’t miss the other outstanding vendors. Nab coffee from Two Roasting Joes. After you make an asparagus pesto, get pasta to coat from Ohio City Pasta. Or, find finds for Fido at Pet Wants Powell. There are so many wonderful vendors to explore, some old some new. For a full list, click here. And, don't forget to follow Pearl Market on Facebook.
And, speaking of new. This year, Pearl Market will be managed by new market manager, Sam Sharkey. Sam is excited to be part of Pearl Market, and you can learn more about her here.
