About Our Market

Youngstown’s oldest farmers’ market originally started in 2003 giving area residents access to local produce for over 10 years. Their vendors offer a large and varied assortment of organic fruits and vegetables. Local artists sell jewelry, t-shirts and other treasures. At the Northside Farmers Market you'll find your fill of musicians, poets and sideshow performers entertaining at their market as well.

Northside has even partnered with ACTION and Grow Youngstown, local chefs, hobby cooks, & dietitians to con- duct food preparation demonstration classes throughout the market season. They will feature recipes made from local, healthy produce and other food available at the market that week. The draw to the Northside Farmers Market is so strong that local groups even or- ganize transportation to these events from various locations throughout the Mahoning Valley.

The kitchen incubator is an ongoing project started by Common Wealth Inc. in 2009. Common Wealth is a non-profit community development organization that got its start in the housing market over 25 years ago. Today, the focus in- cludes rebuilding the local food econ- omy through farmers' markets, a food co-op, healthy food kiosks and now the kitchen incubator. All these elements are part of Common Wealth's Lake-to- River Food Hub and will be tied togeth- er through a new branding campaign called the 30 Mile Meal, a program adopted from Athens, OH, aimed at in- creasing awareness of the availability of local food and creating a network between local growers and buyers.
