Residents near downtown Akron will have a new place to shop for fresh foods.

The Countryside Conservancy says local farmers will sell their foods in a new public food market in Akron’s Northside District. It will be located in the former Northside Lofts parking garage.

Rachel Goforth with Countryside says local food and produce has not been readily available in the downtown area.
