Enjoy unique shopping experiences and take advantage of the summer weather at these outdoor markets. Shop for artwork, vintage clothing, antiques, reclaimed furniture, hand crafted jewelry, home goods, and locally sourced foods.
Hartville is a great shopping destination all year round anchored by the shops in Hartville's historic village square and by the Experience Hartville campus featuring the MarketPlace, Flea Market, Kitchen, Collectibles & Gifts, Children's Boutique and the Hardware . (The world's largest hardware store by the way, where you will find way more than just tools and hardware, for example the 1,850 square foot "idea house" built inside the store.)
There are a handful of weekends each year when the shopping experience on the 12 acre Hartville MarketPlace & Flea Market campus is off the charts, bursting at the seams with vendors and visitors. The upcoming Independence Day Flea Market is one of those weekends with an expected 1,000+ outdoor vendors.
Downtown Canton is another great destination for unique, local shopping. The Canton Arts District features shops, galleries, working artist studios, makers spaces and more. Every third Saturday starting in May through October, the Downtown Canton Flea and the Canton Farmer's Market fall on the same day, making the downtown Canton shopping experience even better!
The Downtown Canton Flea takes place every third Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. along Court Avenue NW in downtown Canton and features more than 75 handmade and vintage vendors, plus live music, kids activities, art demonstrations and more. The Canton Farmer's Market, held every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the corner of Fourth St NW and McKinley Ave NW is a producers-only market, with fresh, seasonal products direct from 20 local growers and producers in Northeast Ohio.
This open-air market pops up at locations throughout the North Canton zip code, which happens to be 44720. The market showcases local makers, artisans, growers, musicians and more. Enjoy locally crafted food, brew, art and music while shopping local vendors. The July 14th 720 Market: City Affair will take place at North Canton Square/St. Paul's Church community lot (241 South Main Street in North Canton). Then, in September the 720 Market will take place at Gervasi Vineyard during the Festa Gervasi Grape Harvest Festival.
To accent a trip to the beautiful Gervasi Vineyard estate, consider a visit during the 8th annual Bellisimo Fine Arts & Crafts Show. Stroll through the pavillion and brick paved pathways as you peruse art in the form of painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, jewelry, glass, ceramic, wood, fiber and more.
Gervasi Vineyard also offers great shopping in The Marketplace open all year round with featured brands, specialty foods, gift baskets, apparel and home decor.
