These events are put on by the Wadsworth Older Adults Foundation and take place every Friday afternoon from June 3rd to August 26th, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the alley just South of the Center at 138 High St. in Wadsworth.
The Courtyard Cafe runs for all of the scheduled dates. For a $5.00 donation, diners may enjoy a sandwich, chips, cookie, and drink. Sandwich offerings vary from week to week, and items are also available a la carte.
The Farmer's Market portion begins later in the summer, once local produce starts coming into season.
Farmers' booths are set up as early as 10:30 a.m. and remain open while supplies last. We all know that buying fresh, farm-grown, locally produced fruits and vegetables are not only a great way to support our community, but it is also the best way to get the highest quality, freshest produce, and reap the greatest dietary benefits! With the diversity our area farmers have in their crops, there is sure to be something deliciously new every week!
Manned by volunteers, all proceeds benefit the Wadsworth Center For Older Adults Foundation, whose mission is "to be proactive in providing supplemental support to the programs and services affiliated with the Wadsworth Center for Older Adults."
During the lunch season of 2010, $4585.00 were raised for the Center For Older Adults, to help put on all of the wonderful programs they offer throughout the year.
