Solon Township to host farmer’s market

by JUDY REED

Residents who love to shop the farmer’s markets during growing season will have a new place to check out come May 8.

Solon Township will sponsor a farmer’s market and craft sale at the old horse farm at 15185 Algoma Avenue every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. beginning May 8 and running through September.

The township bought the property almost a year ago after it was foreclosed on. But they didn’t have the funds this year to renovate it for a township hall or fire barn. “We’ve been talking about how we could use it, and we thought it would be nice to have something close by like this for residents,” explained Linda Badgerow, administrative assistant at the township.

Solon is offering the use of the barn at no charge to vendors and will provide tables if needed. And since the market will be held inside, the sale will go on rain or shine.

The township has been advertising for vendors and Badgerow said that the response has been good. Stands will be on a first come basis. For more info, contact her at (616) 696-1718 or email adminasst@solontwp.org.
