CLEVELAND - It's starting to feel like fall outside in Northeast Ohio but that doesn't mean there are not outdoor events happening in Cleveland throughout the weekend. From the last outdoor Cleveland Flea of the season to the last Walkabout Tremont that promises a ghoulish time, there is something for everyone in this list.
It's the last outdoor market of the season before the Cleveland Flea packs everything up to head indoors for the holiday market. The October market welcomes seven new vendors who offer a range of locally produced products. The Akron Honey Company is an urban apiary that harvests honey from local hives. Bombabird offers a collection of ceramic objects inspired by minimalism. The Cleveland Flea names the wide-mouth cappuccino cups as their favorite piece from the collection. Escher Sunglasses offers durable sunglasses with the choice to pick a customized frame and color for a personalized pair of sunglasses. Fat T's Cookies are pure heaven for anyone who loves a fat, chewy, quarter-pound cookie. Bringing handmade sculptural jewelry to the flea, GRAMMAR champions the minimalism look while staying polished. Handmade by Chelsea is a luxury bakery churning out cut-out cookies that are over the top and delicious. If you're looking to decorate your home, try weavings and macrame pieces by Sarah Harste Weavings. Find all these new vendors at the October Cleveland Flea.
