It’s apple season in Ohio, and The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland is celebrating with a special approach to “fresh picked” for groups.
With a growing reputation for some of the best indoor and outdoor farmers markets in the world, Cleveland has been rising not only as an event city, but also as a foodie destination. From remarkable locavore draw West Side Market, to many nearby farms and agritourism spots, the area’s culinary options for planners are quickly increasing.
At downtown’s newly-remastered Ritz-Carlton, the Apple a Day Break is a visual delight as well as an interactive energizer. It takes advantage of the nutritional profile of Ohio apples, full of phytonutrients and antioxidants, and it then adds an element of fun for guests experiencing conference fatigue.

“We’re delighted to bring local harvests to our meeting content, and the Apple a Day Break is among several new examples,” said Lynn Coletto, Director of Sales and Marketing. “Groups can also enjoy our monthly-changing Farmers Market Dinner Menu, with three courses all highlighting the same fruit or vegetable. For example, our August offering featured tomatoes, and we’ve recently showcased peaches, strawberries and other local produce as well – with sweet corn coming up for September. We also can connect planners directly with area farmers and cultivators to provide interesting new content for their conference agendas.”
Introduction of the Apple a Day Break coincides with the fall 2017 unveiling of a stunning top-to-toe transformation of The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland. The unprecedented remastering features contemporary, all-new meeting and networking space, guest rooms and suites, public areas, Club Lounge, fitness center and restaurant and bar, all reimagined as never before in Cleveland.
