The Market at Lock 3 ~ Akron

2010 Schedule
July 16- October 15
Every Friday 

11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
At Lock 3
200 S. Main St.
Akron, OH

The Market is sponsored by Downtown Akron Partnership and the City of Akron.

Downtown workers and visitors can ride the free Lunch Trolley to The Market at Lock 3 on Fridays. The Trolley runs on Main Street from Spaghetti Warehouse to Northside.

The Market offers something for everyone including farm fresh produce, farm products, honey, nuts, candies, breads, pastries and other food products in addition to soap, fresh cut flowers, summer clothing, handmade jewelry, pottery and other art.
Eating local food is a delicious and healthy way to support the environment and the local economy. Purchasing from The Market ensures that your food is fresh and that you are helping local businesses, farms and artists.

This year, Market visitors will see a few new products among the 28 local vendors. One vendor new to The Market this year is Lucky Penny Creamery, a Northeast Ohio family owned farm that produces a variety of goat dairy products. All products are made on the farm, and Lucky Penny controls the entire process from pasture to the plate. The Market at Lock 3 will feature fresh products like goat cheese, goat milk, yogurt, butter and caramel sauce from Lucky Penny Creamery. This is the first year cheese and dairy products will be sold at The Market.

In addition to these and other new selections, the 2010 Market at Lock 3 will also feature returning vendors including a Market favorite, Homemade Delites. Located in Fairlawn, Homemade Delites provides a delicious assortment of baked goods including their signature Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies. Baked goods will also be provided by Highland Baking Company, Dian's Sweet Dreams, Homemade 2 Order, Big Fat Greek & Italian Pastries, and Hattie's Café & gifts.

After five visits to the markets, participants will get a free reusable produce bag and after 10 visits they will be entered into a drawing for great prizes.
