  • Peacock Pastry
  • Cooks’ Wares
  • Blue Oven Bakery
  • Keegan’s Seafood

  • My Artisano Foods
  • Park + Vine
  • Fireside Pizza
  • Snowville Creamery
  • The Spice & Tea Exchange

The dinner menu ranged from margherita pizza to lamb sliders, smoked trout to kale salad. Wine from Kinkead Ridge Winery and Meranda-Nixon Winery and Beer from Great Crescent Brewery were available to drink is special edition Edible Ohio Valley mason jars.

The event was a huge success and we’d like to thank all of the sponsors, artisans, and guests for coming!

The hybrid plug-in models have software designed to help drivers get the most from the system with information such as instantaneous fuel economy and regenerative breaking status displayed on the dash, helping drivers more closely monitor how their driving behavior affects vehicle efficiency.

Evendale Press Release: Bike & Pedestrian Plan

Evendale Ohio (July 8, 2014) – A resolution to adopt a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master plan was unanimously adopted by Evendale Council on July 8, 2014.

The Village of Evendale had selected the URS Corporation, a nationally recognized provider of engineering and technical services with expertise in bicycle and pedestrian transportation, to assist in preparing the Plan. The Recreation Department managed the project in close collaboration with Village officials.  The study included assessment of existing infrastructure and identification of opportunities, constraints, connectivity and potential sources of funding. There were considerable opportunities for public involvement during the planning process including a survey, public stakeholder meetings, and small group discussions.  A list of priority projects and cost estimates was generated; most notable in terms of resident support (and expense) was the conceptualization of a trail along the Mill Creek.  The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan can be found at

This year’s Greenmarket event will be held at the Gorman Heritage Farm ( in Evendale, OH.
