This has been a long 24 days since opening the store and yesterday I decided I needed to make a change.
I have two awesome employees, Rebecca and Shane. They go out and do markets for me so that I can focus on the store. With all of the media attention I have been swamped and unable to make enough product for the markets, marketplaces, and the store.
I have made the decision not to continue with Countryside Farmers Market in Peninsula and Copley Farmers Market in Copley this year. These markets are awesome but if the sales and amount of customers does not meet our needs we simply can not continue. I can not stress enough that if you like your local farmers market and would like it to continue you need to be a regular customer. More and more of these markets are in jeopardy of closing.
You can find our products at many different locations:
Empty Bin Zero Waste- 310 4th St NW, Canton, OH 44702
- Full store with bulk ingredients and dozens of items.
Northside Marketplace - 21 Furnace Street, Akron, OH 44308
- Small rented space with straws, produce bags, wool dryer balls, wax wraps, un-paper towels, hankies, face squares, and a few more items.
Alley Cats Marketplace - 115 Allen Lane Southwest, New Philadelphia, OH 44663
- Large rented space with straws, produce bags, wool dryer balls, wax wraps, un-paper towels, hankies, face squares, stainless steel containers, toilet paper, chico bags, and vintage aprons.
