Vendor Profile: Harvest in Christ
Harvest In Christ is a Cleveland-based urban agriculture operation with a plot in Slavic Village and another at Kinsman Farm, committed to organic, natural and sustainable farming principles. This year's season extension included low tunnels. Plans for this summer include steady part-time employment of a Slavic Village resident.

This is our first year at Kinsman Farm. We have a few hens (layers), and have proposed the idea of building "Chicken City" at Kinsman Farm: a collaborative chicken keeping and marketing effort between Kinsman Farm members. This year, we intend to market a wide variety of vegetables, husk cherries, and strawberries. The drive of Harvest In Christ includes the conviction that faith without work in creation of a sustainable, fair, natural and organic food system is dead.    

We're indoors at the 5th Street Arcades through May 2013!
(formerly Colonial Marketplace, 530 Euclid Ave) 
You can find us every Friday 11am-2pm in the 5th Street Arcades between East 4th and East 6th Streets, Euclid and Prospect Avenues.

CCFPC Forum: "City Kitchens: Dreaming Up, Building Out, and Sharing the Spaces that Grow our Local Food Entrepreneurs"
You're invited to attend the next Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Food Policy Coalitions forum, “City Kitchens: dreaming up, building out and sharing the spaces that grow our local food entrepreneurs,” on May 21st at 5:30pm in the Great Lakes Brewing Company’s Tasting Room. 
Commercially licensed and affordable kitchen space is a great need among Cleveland community members and food businesses.  During Mayor Jackson's first Sustainable Cleveland 2019 Summit, a community kitchen working group began to conceptualize plans to bring a shared commercial kitchen facility to Cleveland.  We are excited to share what we’ve learned though our research, engagement and discuss existing kitchen projects that will continue the cause of increasing access to licensed and affordable kitchen space in Cleveland.
Kitchen Project Panelists:
  • Cleveland Crops Innovation Kitchen
  • Cleveland Culinary Launch and Kitchen
  • CornUcopia Place and Bridgeport CafĂ©
  • Hildebrandt Food Truck Commissary
This is a free event however registration is required.  Please register here. This event will include light appetizers generously provided by Great Lakes Brewing Company as well as a cash bar.

Downtown residents and employees now have even more access to local food. Fresh Fork Market is adding a pick-up at 5th Street Arcades this season. Registration for the 2013 summer season is open. Visit for more information.
