Crooked River Herb Farm hosts grand opening
WADSWORTH — Gourmet food retailer Crooked River Herb Farm is celebrating its grand opening this weekend at its new location.
The provider of fruit jams and jellies, pepper jellies, pestos, herb vinegars, herb blends and locally made soaps, teas and coffees is serving customers at 1719 Reimer Road in Wadsworth.
Previously, the shop was in Peninsula. Owner Kathleen Varga said that store closed in 2007, and it took several years to find a new space that was just right. She opened for business in Wadsworth in October.
Grand-opening events will take place July 14-15 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Varga said there will be pony rides both days. On Saturday, there will be music from Extra Spooky, and the nonprofit Wags 4 Warriors will be on hand. Cookbook author Judi Strauss also will be there with her books. On Sunday, Michael Cohill, from the Toy and Marble Museum in Akron, will participate in events, and the Pierogi Lady will be making her specialties.
