BAYarts has amped up the Farm & Art Market, going into its fourth year. There will be expanded theme nights running throughout the summer, every Thursday night from 5 to 8 p.m.

More vendors will be in attendance, with local produce, cheese, jewelry, bread, massage, honey, ceramics, baked goods, salsa, garden goods and more. Staple favorites will be mixed with new faces.

Market manager Pam Mills says this will be the market's best year yet. "The idea is to shop local and eat local," she explains. "It's a real passion of mine. Thursday nights in Bay Village will be a destination for families to enjoy a variety of activities through the summer."

Increased this year are the Yappy Hours dog-themed nights, which were a big hit last year. Dog rescues and vendors offering dog food and accessories will be on hand. Dogs on leashes are encouraged to attend these and all markets.

Outdoor movies offered this year will be for "Star Wars," "Lilo & Stitch" and "Cars." Movie nights always include concessions by Sweet Melissa, and start at dark. 

There will be three Art and Automobile nights, where Porsches, Jaguars and Ferraris will be displayed on the BAYarts campus. Individuals are welcome to bring classic or muscle cars to the show. There is no charge to participate.

Some live music nights during the markets will be provided by the bands Hoodoo BBQ, Squirrel Jam and Big Slate. 

Additional market goodies include a Pie Baking Contest night, Family Fun Nights with games, and Summer Solstice Yoga. 

All of these events are free. For a full list of dates, visit
