It’s strawberry season at Molnar Farms in Poland, but customers will see more than the sweet fruit.
The 90-year-old farm is putting the finishing touches on a brand new market that’s taken about a year to build.
“Last year we decided we wanted to do something more,” said Rick Molnar. “Our old market was getting too small. It was getting too crowded on the weekends.”
The Molnars tore down their old building and began construction on the new building in November. All the materials used in the building are American-made.
“The beams came from a company out of Nebraska,” Molnar said. “They were cut in Cleveland, Ga. All of the siding, the finished siding, came from Baird Bros. It was all done locally here. The sandstone on the outside of the porch was cut in Youngstown.”
Customers said they liked the upgrade.
“It’s very impressive,” said Chuck Hanna of Poland. “They’ve done a very nice job here.”
Molnar said fresh strawberries will be ready to be picked in about a week. They have eight varieties filling 100 rows.
