Hudson Farmer's Market celebrates importance of bees with Pollinator Day

Published: September 21, 2016 12:00 AM

Hudson - The Hudson Farmers Market season continues Sept. 24 with Pollinator Day, a celebration of the creatures that help make our crops and plants grow. Whether bees, flies, moths, ants or butterflies, pollinators play a crucial role in making the produce you buy at the Hudson Farmer's Market and we want to highlight their importance as we head into the heart of the harvest season. People are encouraged to dress up as their favorite pollinator, be it bee, butterfly or hummingbird.

We'll have members of the Summit County Master Gardeners Bee Keepers Group on hand to answer questions about pollinators and plants, and we'll have bee keeping equipment and plan on having a bee hive on the Clock Tower Green that day.

The Hudson Montessori Children's Tent will have activities relating to pollinators too.

The Hudson Farmers Market nurtures Hudson through fresh and healthy local produce, but it also fosters community by bringing Hudsonites together. Farmers and gardeners have fresh tomatoes, pumpkins, lettuce, herbs, flowers and apples. Additionally, other vendors have fresh pasta, breads, meats and cheese, and of course, we'll have local honey from Aurora Honey for purchase at their booth.

The Hudson Farmers Market takes place every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. until Oct. 8 on the historic Clock Tower Green.
