Front Of BKL To Be Transformed Into Farmers’ Market

Burke Lakefront (BKL) soon will be more than a place to find airplanes; vendors selling locally grown products will join the lineup.

The sidewalk island in front of the airport will host a farmers’ market every Thursday through Oct. 29. More than 13 vendors will bring fruits, vegetables and other goodies to visitors to the pier area and downtown Cleveland.

“We are excited to host this farmers’ market in one of the city’s most unique venues – Burke Lakefront Airport,” says Ricky Smith, port control director. “Not only are we promoting Cleveland’s locally grown products, but we are bringing people back to the waterfront area. The downtown location is ideal for anyone who is living there, working there or just visiting.”

Included in the offerings will be homemade ice cream made with a 1927 John Deere hit and miss engine; Crooked River Coffee, fresh baked goods, Ohio honey and more; cooking demonstrations by local chefs and food vendors will entertain the crowds.

The market will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and parking will be free.
