Midweek Mentions: May 15-21

Midweek Mentions: May 15-21

Each week, mid-week, we’ll mention a few local haps worthy of checking out.

Countryside Farmer’s Market at Howe Meadow

Countryside Farmer’s Market is OPEN for the season. It has an awesome selection AND it’s in Cuyahoga Valley’s park system. Can’t beat it. From organic produce to fresh pasta to local goat cheese, they’ve got it all. And a couple of food trucks, too, including Spice Kitchen and Bar serving up breakfast burritos.

Breezy Hill Farm

If you missed out getting in a CSA program for 2013, we have a solution for you! Breezy Hill Farm in Alliance grows local, organic produce AND they have an online store.

Place your order Monday-Wednesday, then pick it up and pay at Hazel Artisan Bakery in North Canton on Thursday. Easy as that. Stay tuned for a post on Breezy Hill. :)

Check out their online store here.

canton arts districtCanton Art Walk Series

The New Canton Art Walk Series, presented by the Canton Arts District starts this Saturday, May 18. You should find your way to downtown Canton, Ohio, between 6-10 p.m. to participate in the art walk, but certainly stay later to check out Conestoga, Tozzi’s Downtown, Corporate Grille or any of the other great restaurants and bars. The art walk will be similar to our tried and true First Friday – promoting shops, galleries and music spots in Downtown.

Some of the cool spots to check out include Buzzbin where you can try new craft beers and listen to great music. One of the bands playing, 40s, I had a college class with the lead singer and they’re great! Also check out Element Arts, a neat space displaying John Strauss’ Mid-Century and Art Deco¬†furniture among other glass and metal art from local artists. If you like it, you can vote for it on the Akron-Canton Hotlist.

The Taste of Canton

The Taste of Canton is May 22-23 from 11:30am-9:30pm. My dirty little secret to getting the most bang for your buck… make sure to make rounds to each of the vendors around 9pm on Thursday… most vendors hand out double portions, free samples or free dishes because otherwise they’ll just be dumping the food into the garbage. (I probably gained 5lbs from the extra pulled pork sandwiches and ice cream we walked away with around 9:20pm.) Taste of Canton live entertainment: Jeff Poulos Blues Review, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. May 22 and Ryan Humbert Band , 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. May 23.

Discount tickets to next week’s 5th Annual Taste of Canton are available at Fisher’s Foods. These tickets work like money, each ticket is worth one dollar, and each booth charges between 2-6 tickets for their dishes – you can figure for yourself about how many tickets you’ll need. You’re looking at saving $5 on a $25 ticket purchase from Fisher’s, which will equate to a free Stromboli or ice cream. E and I did this last year and it was a great idea. We saved some money, and with his buying surplus tickets, I lucked out with using them the next day at lunch.

You’ll find the Taste of Canton in the Kresge Lot – Downtown Canton, Market Avenue N between 3rd and 4th st. Parking in decks and meters during the day, free street parking after 6p.m. Admission is technically free, but if you’re eating from any of the 14 local vendors, re-read the part that I told you to buy tickets in advance. Buying alcohol? Bring cash.
