The Cleveland Garlic Festival is the annual fundraiser for North Union Farmers Market Every year, North Union Farmers Market brings fresh and local produce to over 350,000 local shoppers. They are celebrating their 20th Anniversary this year!

The Cleveland Garlic Festival kicks off on Friday September 11th with a BBQ Birthday Bash from 6-9pm featuring garlic BBQ prepared by Chef Ashley Young, wine, beer and live music. $50
The Garlic Festival is Saturday and Sunday. There will be food vendors selling all sorts of garlic delicacies from garlic fries (my favorite!) to pulled pork sandwiches to garlic shrimp and garlic ice cream. Last year the garlic donuts were a big hit too.

  1. Truth be told, I don't really COOK with garlic. So I don't have a "favorite" recipe. But I'm Italian, so growing up garlic was like salt & pepper - it was in everything! I've never been to this fest and would love to go!

    1. They are crazy good! First had them out in Cali and have been obsessed ever since. They normally have two vendors so you can have your own mini taste-off :)

  4. We make a marinated flank steak with chimichurri sauce that has a lot of raw garlic in it. One of my fave Sunday suppers.
