Saturday morning at its best!

Once again North Union Farmers Market is providing an Indoor Winter Market at Shaker Square on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon, January 7 through March 24, 2012. The market is protected from our lovely Ohio winter weather, so you can still reap the benefits of last year’s harvest, and the goods of the artisans.

I remember my very first visit back in 2010. The weather was typical: grey, freezing, snowy, and very wet. Overall, it was your basic Saturday in January! Nothing has changed except this year, “precipitation” could mean rain or snow on any given day. I don't think Mother Nature has decided if it's winter or spring, but who’s complaining?

Anyway, when you enter the small confines of the market, you will be greeted by smells of savory, sautéed meats: beef, lamb or sausage, just to name a few. We mustn’t forget about the fresh baked apple pies, berry tarts, and other rather unique delicacies. Make a mental note to yourself: “Sample my way through the market!.” Oh, and the sounds of your stomach growling, will be obvious to everyone you meet...so sample to your heart’s content.

As you make your way through the market, make sure to stop by and see the Ohio City Pasta booth; their pasta is to die for! We had their four-cheese and spinach and cheese raviolis for Christmas dinner. My family is still asking for seconds!

Be sure to stop by Lucy's Sweet Surrender as well. Let's just say there is a reason the word “surrender” is in the name of her company. You surrender to the sweet-tasting delights she creates! Stop by her booth and pick up some goodies for your Sunday morning brunch!

Lettuce, onions, garlic, spinach, and potatoes are just a few of the many types of produce available at the market this weekend. Oh, and don't forget the juicy, sweet-tasting apples available from Woolf Farms. A fresh-baked apple pie for dinner sounds pretty nice, or even some homemade applesauce!

Don’t forget about other non-culinary creations; there are artisans like AnaBanana Jewelry, Hummingbird Creations, Purses by Patricia and much, much more!

As you can see, there is something for everyone at Shaker Square’s Indoor Market. Put it on your agenda, and make your way down to the market tomorrow. I promise, you won’t leave hungry.
