The 2011 Cleveland Garlic Festival

(As submitted nu the Cleveland Garlic Festival)

North Union Farmers’ Market is proud to present the second annual Cleveland Garlic Festival at historic Shaker Square! This grassroots food and music event will take place Saturday, September 10, 2011 from 1:00 PM. to 9:00 PM., and Sunday, September 11, 2011 from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM. All proceeds will support North Union’s mission of championing local foods by connecting certified producers with consumers through a network of markets in order to:

    • Supply the community with the freshest, most nutritious food – harvested ripe and brought fresh to market
    • Support growth and incubate over 300 small businesses in Northeast Ohio
    • Stimulate the local economy by keeping money in our communities
    • Keep Ohio land producing food and supporting families, which saves farms from destruction

“This is a natural outgrowth of our seven markets and their close connection with all of the Cleveland area’s top chefs who purchase products at our markets,” states Donita Anderson, Executive Director of the North Union Farmers’ Market. She continues, “This event showcases the tremendous culinary talent here in Northeast Ohio. Many people are not aware that Ohio garlic has a singular special quality because of the soil. This means greater anti-viral health and most importantly, the best garlic in the world!”

The Cleveland Garlic Festival will be ground zero for “all things garlic” in the Midwest Great Lakes region. Attendees will enjoy garlic-themed food prepared by local chefs including everything from ice cream to oysters, an onsite celebrity chef Grill-Off, live music, cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, taste and grow tents for children, and many more events and activities.

So mark your calendars and get out the breath mints – the Cleveland Garlic Festival arrives this Fall!
