New Vendor Spotlight: Autumn Oats
"Autumn Oat's is a home produced, gluten free, all natural granola mix with no added sweetener comprised of the freshest and healthiest ingredients that will get you healthy and keep you healthy.  The product all started when my mom Autumn, decided to make her own granola mixes until she settled on this very recipe.  Autumn's recipe was so good to herself and others that I took it upon myself to sell it at local farmers markets throughout the Greater Cleveland area.  Growing up in southern ohio, Autumn gets all the ingredients from Walnut Creek in Amish Country. Autumn Oat's is well on its way to being the best oat's from coast to coast." - Peter Jeney, Autumn Oats
