The Hartville MarketPlace is 3-acres worth of endless discovery. The flea market-type of atmosphere you experience outside is just the beginning. Inside, the two-story building is packed with all types of vendors. There are the some who want to do good, like Jeanne’s Butterfly Kisses, which donates 10 percent of proceeds to the Stewart Caring Place, a cancer wellness center in Akron, and the Wind & Fire Motorcycle Club, which consists of firefighters raising money for burn victims. Then there are some who just make good food like The Pierogi Lady and Pappardelle’s: The Fine Art of Pasta. The Hartville MarketPlace is located at 1289 Edison St. NW Hartville, Ohio 44632. It’s open all year round, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, so go discover it for yourself.
