At his next Market Day on June 30, Wesley Ian will be piloting a new brand identity for Akron Honey Company, including four new flavors of honey: Ghost Pepper, Habanero, Bourbon and Hickory Smoked Strawberry.
“This is a brand that is exempt of fear and saturated with courage and centered on being created by the people who want to consume it,” Wesley says. “I’m about to go all in with being experimental.”
“I want to freak the hell out of food,” Wesley adds.
At the Sunday afternoon market, fans of Akron Honey Company will have a chance to try the new flavors while exploring other local businesses.
Wesley is calling his market day an “open-air social market,” where visitors are encouraged to support local businesses while enjoying food and music from DJ Forrest Getemgump.
This is Akron Honey Company’s only Market Day for the year and visitors can expect to see local favorites in attendance, like Popsmith and The Square Scullery, along with Garret Candle Company, among others.
“It’s going to feel as awesome as any market day ever has,” says Wesley.
