720 Market: A City Affair—July 14, Head to St. Paul’s Church in North Canton from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to peruse the unique and curated, special event open-air market. It’s a fresh opportunity to shop local, support local businesses and experience a local venue in a new way. It showcases local makers, bakers, brewers, growers and more along with community nonprofits, live local music and food vendors.
Craft brewers—the heart and soul of this Oktoberfest issue—are small, independent and traditional. They’re passionate and driven. They treat every batch like an experiment that comes to a head (pun intended) at the precise intersection of artistic devotion and scientific experiment.
The holidays are upon us, and that means family get-togethers, parties, shopping and of course, gifting. I always feel weird answering the age-old question, “What do you want for Christmas?” When I was a kid, I would create multiple lists so that I wouldn’t get two of the same gift. Smart thinking!
For most people, vacation days are long gone with the end of summer, but we Cantonians have some premier daycation spots within an hour’s drive time. Getting creative with weekends and the elusive weekday holiday, you can take in a bundle of attractions, all in one day.
Sometimes you have to leave the beaten shopping path to find truly unique holiday gifts. The area has many gift shops that feature items related to the venue as well as the unexpected. The next couple of pages detail the offerings of seven local favorites to try.
