Reserve a table at the Farmers Market!

"See you at the Market!"

Most often, when I post about the Granville Farmers Market on social media, I end the post with "See you at the Market!"  It happened organically (ha! farm pun), but the real reason I add that statement is because it's true. As you stroll the Market, you see your friends, neighbors, business associates, and that familiar face you just can't place. It's one of the joys of our village - when you go to the Farmers Market, you meet Granville.

Your business has the opportunity to meet Granville, too! Most Saturdays from May to October, the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce hosts four member businesses at tables found at the head of the market. Tables are FREE to current GACC members and are reserved on a first come, first serve basis. Any GACC member may reserve up to FOUR dates throughout the market season.

Tabling at the Granville Farmers Market is an excellent opportunity for you and your organization to interact with the Granville community and visitors. Bring brochures/rack cards about your work, business cards, email sign up lists, a coupon, a giveaway item - get creative! A unique display will attract the attention of the hundreds of people that visit the market each morning.

Sign up is now OPEN for the 2017 Market season. To reserve your dates, email Steve Matheny at smatheny@granvilleoh.com. Granville looks forward to seeing you at the market!

It was a dark and cheerless time around these parts. The people were hungry and could not be satisfied. The winter had been long, and the choices had been few. The times called out for nourishment, yet none would be found. That's when two men looked to their past in distant lands that had long been at war and remembered - "STEAMED BAGEL SANDWICHES!" Shortly thereafter they met a tomato farmer, who became equally infatuated with the cause, and the three of them set off to spread the knowledge far and wide. Suddenly there was hope, and a deep craving roared in the bellies of the townsfolk. For those of us who spent time in Oxford or Athens, Ohio - we know. The rest will learn, just as we did, what it feels like to crave. As Granville becomes the first home of SteamRoller Bagel Sandwiches, we invite you to bring a friend and share the excitement. Your hunger is over, you have met your hot new obsession!
