Quarry Hill Orchards

When I was a kid, way back in the good old days, my grandfather liked nothing better than to pile us into a car (no air conditioning, of course) and head out to the country to buy fruit, or just see the sights. The orchards near Lake Erie were a favorite destination.

After much teasing and telling us we weren’t going to stop this time, we’d always pull into my all-time favorite little ice cream stand on Route 113 for cones, or on rare occasions, a chili dog and a chocolate milk shake.

Then it was on to countless fruit and vegetable stands. Apples, peaches, strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, plums, cherries, pumpkins – each season brought its own treasure hunt. One of our stops was usually Quarry Hill Orchards in Berlin Heights.

To sit in the backseat of Grandpa’s car eating one of their apples, or a peach, as we drove through beautiful farmland, is one of my best childhood memories.

And now, four thousand years later with a grandchild of my own to take for a drive to get ice cream, we are proud to say some of our products are carried at Quarry Hill.

Drive out to get some of our lavender infused creamed honey. While you’re there, check out their large selection of items from around Ohio – pickles, jellies, maple syrup, noodles, baking mixes, popcorn, and candies to name a few.

And you certainly won’t be able to pass up their fruit.

So pile your kids into the car, or your grandkids, or your friends – heck, grab a stranger if you have to – and take a drive to “the country” to buy some fruit, pick up some honey, and indulge in an ice cream cone.

The memories you’ll create are priceless.

A Day at “The Flea”

On the second Saturday of the month, from April through October, you can find us at one of my most favorite venues on the planet – The Cleveland Flea.

“Part urban treasure hunt

Part culinary adventure

Part maker center”

The Flea is a day of people watching, treasure hunting, Food Truck binging and enjoying the unique, slightly quirky flavor of Cleveland.

First of all, if you didn’t know the flea was happening, you would never just stumble upon it. Tucked into a parking lot between several warehouses and factories off of Superior and East 36th Street in Cleveland’s Asia Town, The Flea isn’t visible from the street. But the hundreds of people you see walking towards it from off-site parking is a dead giveaway. To the untrained eye, you’d ask yourself where the heck are all these people going on a Saturday afternoon. If you’d allow yourself to follow your curiosity and see where they were heading, you’d discover a true gem.

Hundreds of vendors bring handmade wares,

or slightly odd items you’d love to buy for that certain someone in your life.

We’re there with our full selection of honey, soap and yarn.

But if I’m being honest here, I’m really in it for the food.

I mean, who wouldn’t love a “mobile mini donut mini kitchen” Or the Pieorgi Lady. Or Cleveland Kraut. Or  a cevapi sandwich from Taste of Europa. Or …. I could go on and on. Let’s just say you won’t go hungry at The Flea.

These people didn’t!

If you want to experience true Cleveland, put The Flea on your calendar

You will enjoy each and every moment of it.

And come see us. We’ll be in booth 40, right in the heart of all the action.

Hope to see you May 14th.
