About the Cleveland Garlic Festival - Our Mission
Funds from the Cleveland Garlic Festival allow North Union Farmers' Market to operate markets weekly throughout the year in Greater Cleveland. We administer and expand our educational and charitable market programs, which continue to be very important complements to our market season (Food Stamp enhanced purchases/EBT-SNAP, Music at the Market, Chef at the Market, Mighty Locavores K-2 educational programming in Cleveland Municipal School District and much more). With the help of 150 loyal farmers and producers, North Union Farmers Market will bring fresh, local, healthy food to more than 275,000+ customers this year.
With events such as our garlic festival, our partnerships and educational programming, we are able to reach both under-served and well-served populations of shoppers throughout Northeast Ohio.
North Union Farmers' Market champions the local foods of Northeast Ohio and promotes their environmental, economic and health benefits by connecting certified producers with consumers through a network of markets. The Cleveland Garlic Festival will further these goals by bringing awareness about the importance of local foods, while also spreading the love of garlic!
