Farm-Fresh Produce - Stark County, OH - DeHOFF REALTORS®

When you buy produce, you typically don't know much about how it's grown or how many miles it traveled before it reaches you. This means it won't be as fresh, tasty, or nutrient-dense as it could be. Buying farm-fresh produce, on the other hand, means you know where your food comes from and can get specific information about how it was grown. It will be delicious, colorful, and full of important nutrients, and as an added bonus, you'll be helping to support your local farmers and economy.

Our real estate agents recommend visiting these five places in Stark County to stock up on farm-fresh produce.

  1. North Canton Farmers Market – 1447 N. Main St., North Canton, OH 44720

During warmer weather months. The market is operated outside, then moves to the indoors after mid-October.
