The Summer Market is a beautiful and unique, outdoor festival held right along the Black River in Lorain, Ohio.  Thousands of guests visit the Market each year to shop for furniture, architectural salvage, vintage finds, art & jewelry, coastal decor, fresh produce and a variety of other goods from more than 100 vendors.

Guests can grab a bite to eat from several featured restaurants and food trucks, enjoy a cocktail by the water, enjoy live music, watch the sun set or shop in the summer sun.

The Summer Market is a fundraising event for our non-profit, Girls Give Back.  Proceeds benefit local families and organizations in need. It is a wonderful, feel good event that should not be missed! Especially because it only happens once a year!

Oh, and bring a truck! There will be so much here you will want to take home!

“The Summer Market brings a high-quality, exciting experience to Lorain and the greater community each year. They provide an exceptional experience in a way that involves our community and our downtown’s small business district. Main Street Lorain is proud to consistently partner with the Summer Market.”

Tim Smith - Owner of Dodie's Dockside Restaurant

"The Summer Market is my favorite event of the year at Black River Landing - especially from a business perspective. Not only is the event an awesome draw with great vendors in a perfect environment, but it’s a continuous, all-day draw unlike anything else. It’s a revolving door and the people come ALL-DAY-LONG!"
