Stark County FOOD Book
The food of Stark County has made mouths water for generations. The region’s unique soil nurtured an early boom in agriculture, and growers like K.W. Zellers Farm still find success today. Forgotten mom-and-pop grocery stores such as Flory’s and Lemmon’s served the needs of their neighborhoods, while long-gone restaurants like Mergus and Topp’s Chalet created delicious dishes and cherished memories. Other, like Bender’s Tavern and Taggart’s Ice Cream Parlor, serve the same legendary fare they have for decades. Families such as the Millers and Swaldos have created nationally recognized destinations out of small and simple starts. Canton Food Tours Owner, Barb Abbott and her co-author Kim Kenney, CEO of the McKinley Presidential Library, trace Stark County’s food history from the earliest orchards and farms to today’s culinary scene.
