Like what the Flying Fig has to offer? Now Ohio City residents can take home some of their favorite ingredients at Chef and Owner Karen Small’s fresh food market, located in the restaurant.
Small says the inability for some residents to attend local farmers markets spurred the idea.
“I thought it was a nice complement to what we’re doing at the restaurant,” Small explains. We’re “providing some of the same ingredients we use at the restaurant so they can use them themselves.”
Since opening, Small has branched out to include fresh foods from different farmers markets.
Smalls boasts that all of the Flying Fig’s ingredients come from within 50 miles of Cleveland, including vegetables from the area’s emerging urban farms. “Right now, we have a lot of beets, grains and sweet potatoes.”
