Mapleview Market started more than 30 years ago when Judy Zorger set up shop along highway 619 in Hartville selling basic produce staples in the local Flea Market. Within a couple years, Judy brought in a French Fry Trailer to offer concessions as well, and then in the late 80’s, started offering candy and nuts to the hungry customers.
When the Hartville Flea Market moved down the road and became the Hartville Marketplace in 2002, Judy was one of the first indoor vendors. She brought her Candy & Nuts business into an 800 square-foot space. Roughly five years later, the business expanded to include Deli products and Amish baked goods, creating “The Cheese Barn”. A short few years later, the businesses merged into one entity – The Cheese Barn and Nut & Candy Shack – doubling its square footage.
Through all this time, Judy’s children were there, helping their mom wherever they could until five years ago when her son Clint took over the business from her.
Today, Clint and his family are reaching for new heights as they expand the business to more than 8,000 square feet inside the Hartville Marketplace, becoming the “Anchor” business for the indoor vendors. While still offering the same great selection of products as before, they have also expanded to include many jarred goods, fresh produce, frozen foods, bulk-packaged items, more than 50 flavors of old-fashioned bottled pop, and so much more.
With these changes also came a change in name for this business, becoming Mapleview Market. The name was created as a tribute to Judy and her love for Maple Trees as well as creating a new brand for a new era of this business.
Now, you can visit Mapleview Market six days a week with new extended hours via the South entrance to Hartville Marketplace. Come and have a personal shopping experience like never before that will leave you wanting to visit as often as possible.
