Farmers’ market kicks-off summer season in Youngstown

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The Idora Neighborhood Farmers’ Market opened for the season in Youngstown Tuesday afternoon.

The farmers’ market is located at the corner of Glenwood and Sherwood Avenues, and runs every Tuesday through October 4.

The kick-off event for the market’s third year featured face painting and games for kids.

Eleven vendors showed up on Tuesday, some selling out of their products within the first hour.

Along with offering fresh, farm-to-table foods, the market is providing lots of activities for kids and adults.

“This year, we really tried amping up the events at each market. So we’re going to have cooking demos, gardening demos, we’ll have yoga at the market, drum circles…a lot of different events,” said Director Megan LaMarca.

Ohio EBT cards, food stamps, SNAP cards, and WIC farmers’ market coupons are accepted. Individual vendors may also accept Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program coupons.

For those using food stamps, the market will double purchases up to $20. If they take $20 off their card, they will receive $40 to spend at market vendors on eligible foods.
