Happenings at the Downtown Farmers' Market

Live music today: Gangsters of Whitewall will be playing from 11:30am-1:30pm. Listen here.

FREE PARKING! We have saved a limited number of parking spaces for shoppers of Downtown Farmers Market on Rockwell Avenue between Ontario and East Roadway.

Featured Recipe: Peach Johnny Cakes

The recipe for the corn meal pancakes was found at Los Angeles Times here. Where you have the option to use sugar, syrup or honey, I would suggest using pure maple syrup or honey to retain moisture and flavor.
Once you’ve made your pancakes, top with chopped peaches, pure maple syrup and powdered sugar. Enjoy!

The Cleveland Farmers Market Guild and Growhio have teamed up to bring you this collection of recipes featuring ingredients from your favorite Cleveland area farmers markets. Please feel free to send your own market recipes to and we'll share them on this page.
