Nobody Makes Them Like Grandma

Pierogi Lady Post 1

Today’s blog post is s guest post from Autumn Johnston, owner of The Pierogi Lady located in the South Wing of the Hartville MarketPlace. Autumn is an experienced chef and pierogi connoisseur. Today she is sharing with us some fond childhood memories of her Gram and the beautiful pierogis she would hand craft for her family  .

Pierogies-34One thing we hear a lot at our pierogi shop are stories of how our customer’s grandmother, or mother, or mother-in-law used to make “the best” pierogis. Watching us roll, fill and pinch pierogis brings back fond childhood memories of being “the pincher” and anxiously awaiting a pierogi feast at the dinner table.

Family’s differ in what pierogis they grew up with.  Some potato cheese, some dry cottage cheese (sweetened or unsweetened with chives or without chives), some sauerkraut with potato, some with prune, plum, apricot….. the list goes on.  My grandmother (we call her Gram) made potato cheddar, sauerkraut, and apricot.

Gram taught me to make pierogis.  She was an amazing cook.  We gathered every Sunday at her table, twenty to thirty of us depending on the week. There was always a wide variety of food and you never knew what you were going to be surprised with that week.  Pierogis, chicken dumpling soup, lasagna, pagash (a Polish potato casserole) that was one of our favorite dishes, were just a few of the things she made often.

So many memories were made at those Sunday suppers.  They all come rushing back to me with a bite of pierogi.

We would like to help bring back your memories and create new ones with your family.  At The Pierogi Lady we make over 100 varieties of pierogis.  We try to accommodate everyone’s memories of how their “Gram” made them when they were growing up.  While we know they will never be quite the same as Grams, we will do our best!

Enjoy.

Decorating With Vintage Ladders

Decorating With Vinatge Ladders

Today’s blog post is s guest post from Dan & Brenda Metzger, owners of The Boston Road Collection located on the second floor of the Hartville MarketPlace.

towelladder

Old wooden ladders are readily available, affordable and fun to decorate with both indoors and out.  If your not lucky enough to have an old ladder in your garage or barn – not to worry. Flea markets, garage sales, and antique shops area good source for ladders.

Ladders can be found in natural wood tones or in old painted finishes which add to their decorating appeal.  Feel free to paint your old ladder to match your decorating scheme A light sanding after painting will add rustic charm and slightly age the piece giving it an old world or worn feel.

gardenladderoutdoorsLean an old wooden ladder against the wall to display vintage quilts or towels. Hang a ladder from the kitchen ceiling to display vintage baskets or pots and pans.  A ladder hung horizontally on the wall provides unique display space for family photos and accessories.  Place a step ladder outside in your landscaping scheme to arrange plants while providing vertical visual impact.  

The uses for old discarded ladders are endless.  Bottom line – step up to the decorating challenge – use your imagination and have fun.

Becoming A Vendor

Outdoor Flea Market And Farmers Market Vendors

We have outdoor vendor spaces available on open blacktop areas and in two large open-air pavilion buildings. Vendor spaces are available on a daily first-come, first- served basis, which you pay for by the day, or on a reserved basis, which you pay for in advance by the month. Space may not be reserved for less than a full month. Any vendor who does not pay in full for their spaces at time of collection will be asked to vacate the space and will jeopardize future space rental. Hartville MarketPlace does not cash checks or provide change. Customers must be treated with courtesy and fairness. Rudeness to customers will not be tolerated. Most vendors are required to have a state vendor’s license.

PAVILION SPACES:
Pavilion Spaces are 10′ x 10′ concrete spaces under cover with an adjacent 10′ x 30′ blacktop area for a vendor’s vehicle or additional display area. There are no first come, first serve pavilion spaces. Vendors must check with a staff member in the morning for available pavilion spaces. During the prime pavilion season, which is May through September, all pavilion vendors are required to remain in their spaces and open for business until at least 3 p.m.


BLACKTOP SPACES:
Blacktop spaces are 12′ across the customer aisle and 30′ deep. For daily first-come, first-serve blacktop spaces, vendors may leave a vehicle or trailer in the space overnight after 5PM the day before to reserve the space for the following day. Tables and/or merchandise cannot be left in a space as a means of reserving a space. Vendors can come in and take any blacktop space that is not marked “RESERVED” for that day. There will be letters underneath the word “RESERVED” indicating which days of the week the space is reserved for; just make sure there is no letter for the day of the week that you are here for.  A staff member will come around and collect after vendors are set up.

Holiday Special Setup

We do not reserve space in our outdoor market on a daily basis.  All spaces are reserved on a monthly basis according to the day you want to be here.  If you want to set up for the holiday special, we recommend that you get a space for all 4 market days.  You may pull in on Thursday morning between 7 and 8am.  You will pick an OPEN AIR BLACKTOP space, make sure it is not marked RESERVED for any of the days you want to set up, set up for the day, and leave a locked vehicle in that space to hold it for the next market day.  For Monday and Saturday set up we will add a $5.00 premium charge over and above the regular price for all non-reserved pavilion and blacktop spaces.

If you choose to come the day of the market to set up, we suggest vendors arrive each market day by 5:30am.  We do not guarantee spaces to be available.  You may not leave anything other than a vehicle in the space to hold it.  Any other items will be picked up by the MarketPlace Staff and you may face a fine.  At the end of each market day, all merchandise must be packed up and all trash must be removed.  No trash is to be left by a vendor!  Vendors who leave trash behind will be fined.  We also recommend that you bring your own tables.  The tables that we rent will be distributed first come, first serve while supplies last.

Owning A Shop

Discover a revolution in shopping. Hartville MarketPlace offers a year-round indoor shopping experience that is second to none. This beautiful two-story complex combines the best of days gone by with all of the amenities of a modern shopping center.

Hartville MarketPlace – 100,000 Square Feet of Ideal Space

Indoor spaces are the most permanent of our spaces. Vendors sign a one-month contract and are required to be here all the days and hours we are open during that month. Those days and times are Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 5 pm. If you are unable to commit to this, then you should look at the Outdoor Vendor Information, where you can be here for just one day. Indoor spaces average $345 per month for a 10′ by 10′ space, and are paid for a month in advance. Corner spaces are a few dollars more per day. If you are interested in indoor space, please call Marion Coblentz at 330-877-9860 or stop by Customer Service to fill out the paperwork.
