“We’re always excited to bring back our off-season markets to the Summit on the Park” said Canton Farmers Market Coordinator Anne Driscoll. “Our goal with these three indoor markets is to create a unique shopping experience for our patrons, while supporting our local farmers and producers who help enable us to provide access to fresh, healthy food sources.”
During the February 23 off season market, a special fundraiser is being held to that will specifically benefit the Canton Police and Fire Departments through the Canton Cares Fund, which is overseen by the Canton Community Foundation. Women’s Life Society, Chapter 827 and Chicks 4 Charity will host a special Chili Cook Off fundraiser from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Summit on the Park Banquet Center. Tickets for this event are $20 for ages 13 and older, or $5 for ages 12 and under.
