This year, North Union Farmers Market is pleased to participate in the Produce Perks Incentive Program of the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Food Policy Coalition. The incentive is a dollar-for-dollar match to every dollar spent (up to $10) using an Ohio Direction Card at the market. There is no minimum purchase amount to qualify for the incentives and as the name suggests, Produce Perks are only good for purchasing fruits and vegetables. All other tokens purchased with the Ohio Direction Card are good to use on eligible items at the market.
North Union Farmers Market at University Hospitals opens on Thursday, July 25 from 10:30am to 1:30pm, rain or shine. It continues every Thursday through October 3, supplying locally grown fresh produce from Ohio farmers.
