Area meteorologists all agree: There will be no rain Saturday during the second-to-last Stow Community Farmers Market of the 2012 season.
The market is open from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday in the Stow Community United Church of Christ parking lot (behind The Briarwood between Englewood and Baumberger Drives).
A new food introduced at the market last week – homemade pierogies – were a huge hit with shoppers and they’ll be available again this week on a first-come, first-served basis. The potato or sauerkraut pierogies served with sautéed onions, sold by the dozen or half dozen, can be eaten on the spot or taken home.
This week's entertainment will be provided by musician Mike Harvan. This is his third appearance and organizers say he's “become a market favorite because of his music selection, enthusiasm for the market and his showmanship.”
And Stow resident Bob Harter will be back at the market this week doing woodcarvings with his chainsaw.
The market’s public service booth this week will feature Walgreen's of Stow and Kent. Information on drug interactions will be provided and a Walgreen’s pharmacist will be giving flu shots. Those with insurance cards should bring them. Otherwise, flu shots will cost $30.
As always, Mocha Joe's Coffee House will be providing free coffee to market shoppers and free bottled water will be available at the market information booth.
The market’s final day of the season, Oct. 6, will include an “Apple and Pumpkin Fest” celebration. The market will be featuring some of the best apple, pumpkin and other assorted pies, pierogies and hot dogs, as well as free pumpkins for the kids to carve or decorate.
