Farmers Return to Shaker Square 

When: Sat., April 9 2011

There's no shortage of reasons to celebrate spring. But one of the best happens today on Shaker Square, with the annual re-boot of the North Union Farmers Market. Now in its 17th year, the weekly market brings together scores of farmers and artisanal producers for what has become one of the region's best resources for fresh, seasonal, locally grown foods. Today's festivities begin at 8 a.m. with the annual blessing; that's followed by sheep shearing, a spinning demonstration, a visit from live alpacas, and music by the Burning River Jazz Quartet. Also on hand will be chef Matthew Anderson of Chagrin Falls' Umami Asian Kitchen, who will be cooking up inspiration in the guise of yummy breakfast samples. The market operates outdoors from 8 to noon each Saturday, rain or shine, through December 17.
