Kamm’s Corners Farmers Market?? You bet! Even though it’s only February, last month the committee held its first meeting for the 2008 season.

Of particular importance to the market is ongoing funding to be sure the market is able to continue to be the Sunday tradition it became last year. The committee is dedicated to providing not only the freshest available produce, but also the great lineup of entertainment, chef demonstrations, and health and wellness activities that were embraced by the neighborhood last year.

We have partnered with the famed Ohio City restaurant Johnny Mango to host a day where 20% of their sales from customers who present the coupon linked here will be donated to the Kamm’s Corners Farmers Market. That includes eat in, take out, alcohol sales, everything! So why not plan a meal on Monday, March 3rd around Johnny Mango? Your business will be very much appreciated. A map can be found here.

Looking for ways to save money?
