Sizzle Simmer Sauté–Summer market kicks off with farmers, food and fun

Jennifer Ruple

Opening day for the Sylvania Farmers Market is right around the corner. I couldn’t be more excited to welcome the new season and new vendors as well as catch up with those returning for another summer. In less than two weeks, local farmers, vendors and food trucks will line the streets of downtown Sylvania when the market kicks off its seventh season on June 4.
The market will be held on Tuesdays from 3 -7 pm through October 8 at a new location on Maplewood Avenue, west of Main Street. Along with the new setting comes a few new features. Connie Torrey, market director noted, “We will have live entertainment each week from local musicians; Food Truck Row, located along Richard Becker Drive; and a seating area with tables for guests to relax and eat.”
Here’s a little preview of what to expect from vendors this season.

Locally grown vegetables, micro greens, herbs and plants will be in abundance from area farms including newcomer Beluga Farms of Maumee and returning farms Farnsel Farms, Garden Nursery, GLS Produce, Louis Keil and Sons and Stevens Gardens. Cody Murnan of Ottawa Lake Heritage Farm is excited to be participating again. “I’m looking forward to all of the amazing conversations based around food,” he said.
Acorn Hill Farms will return to the market with its line of Angry Goat soaps and lotions made from goat milk. Dee’s Bees Honey will be back with its all-natural products.
