University Hospitals Portage Medical Center, in collaboration with The Auxiliary of UH Portage Medical Center, will host a series of Farmers Markets twice a month on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. through Sept. 19.

The markets will be held in the parking lot of the hospital, located at 6847 N. Chestnut St., in Ravenna. During inclement weather, the market will move indoors to the Portage Medical Arts Building atrium.

Participating vendors will offer fresh produce, herbs, grass-fed beef products and flowers. Great Harvest Bread Company and The Sloptruck will also be on site.
