There are so many reasons to love Cleveland, but we’re in the process of choosing 40 of our favorite spots in Northeast Ohio to commemorate our 40th anniversary! If you haven’t checked out Akron’s Northside District, which borders downtown Akron and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, you are missing out. It is home to over 80 retail shops and restaurants, including long-time institutions like Luigi’s, but continues to grow and evolve into one of Akron’s biggest hot spots. We thought it was fitting to include it on our list (#29!)
The addition of the Northside Marketplace has been a game changer. This unique marketplace is home to a very eclectic mix of vendors, including art studios, a bicycle shop, locally-made honey, jewelry, candles, and soaps, to name a few. The Marketplace offers a space for small businesses to grow with the support of local foundations and Akron business leaders. Not only are there retail vendors and local artisans, but Northside also has a social lounge with various food vendors and a bar. The Marketplace is open seven days a week and has recently welcomed the Countryside Farmers’ Markets into their space every Sunday, year-round, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Executive Arrangements team is constantly busy exploring Cleveland and meeting new people so we can offer honest recommendations to you and your job candidates. We would love to help you attract top talent to Cleveland with full-day (or even multi-day) orientations. For more information, please contact us here or give us a call at 216.231.9311.
