Happenings at the Downtown Cleveland Farmers' Market
We'll be at Public Square today 11am-2pm, RAIN or SHINE! Grab an umbrella and come on down! As I'm looking at yet another rainy forecast, I wanted to take the time thank all of the loyal patrons who make it down to the market each week - no matter how cold or wet - to support their favorite vendors. This season's market runs through Friday, October 28 so we have just a few weeks left on Public Square. Come on out and make the best of what's left of the 2011 farmers market season.
Cleveland Cooks with The House of Blues Foundation Room There are still a few spaces available for tomorrow's Cleveland Cooks class. Theresa Todia, Executive Chef for The House of Blues Foundation Room will lead the cooking class, which takes place tomorrow - Friday, September 30 at 2:00pm. To attend this intimate hands-on cooking class, please email email@example.com or call (440) 821-0254.
A monthly cooking series providing hands-on demonstrations from area chefs. Part of the Growhio Education Sessions, classes will include a guided market tour, hands-on instruction in meal preparation and tips on how to grow produce easily at home. Classes are free and open to the public but will target Downtown residents and employees. Cleveland Cooks will take place at Old Stone Church on the last Friday of the month. Cleveland Cooks was made possible thanks to a grant from Neighborhood Connections.
