Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: July 23rd Market Report


Sweet corn from Doran's Family Farm.

Home grown. Home made. All Ohio It's another Market Wednesday in Uptown Westerville! 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. @ N. State and E. Home Streets.

A light summer morning soaker rain is taking the high temps and humidity with it, as it moves along to the east. Weather today is forecast to be cooler and more comfortable than yesterday, look for partly cloudy skies, temperatures in the mid 70s to low 80s, elevated (but not oppressive) humidity, and a light breeze. There is the usual slight chance of rain between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.

This week's confirmed Vendor Line-up includes: Doran's Family Farm, Hartzler Family Dairy, Dana Lee's, The Blueberry Patch, Annabelle's Blooms, Blue Jacket Dairy, Chuck Evans' Montezuma Brand Sauces and Salsas, Sweet Thing Gourmet, Dan the Baker, Swainway Urban Farm, Fox Hollow Farm, Bird's Haven Farm, Roger's Honey, Flying J Farm.

This week's community partner is Westerville Public Library!!

We will not see Z Blueberry this week because of the success of this week's U-Pick activity. Blueberries are at market! Just visit The Blueberry Patch.

Two vendors are out of this week's line-up: Sugar B Bakery and Pleiades Maple - both vendors will return next week.

Update: We just heard from Barb Taylor-Leedy with Ohio Farm Direct, she's developed quite a case of poison ivy and will not be at market today. OFD may send a sub, but last minute subs can be hard to find, so we may not see OFD this week. 

We will not see Bridgman Farm this week.

We have a confirm from Dana Lee's!

We couldn't resist! Had to throw in a little Dana Carvey!

There's a lady I know/If I didn't know her/
She'd be the la-day I didn't know./
And my lady, she went downtown/
She bought some ber-ra-ccoli/
She Brought it Ho-ome/
She's chop'in broccoli
Chop'in brocco-li
Chop'in brocco-la
Chop'in Brocco-laa-aa

Amazingly, Dana Carvey's first moments on SNL
 in 1986 featured "The Lady I Know."

To analyze the charms of flowers is like dissecting music; 
it is one of those things which it is far better to enjoy, 
than to attempt to fully understand.

Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: July 16th Market Report


A beautiful Market Wednesday! Sunny skies, temperatures in the mid-70s, low humidity, and a light breeze. (And, the typical slight chance of rain between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.) 

A perfect day to pick up a little farm fresh! 

Home grown. Home made. All Ohio. 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. today! @ N. Home and E. State Streets in Uptown Westerville. 

Orange Cone Update: As of this morning, the parking area to the east of the market space remains blocked off. The lot is resurfaced, not yet striped, but still blocked off.

Roasted in the husk in the hottest possible 
oven for forty minutes, shucked at the table, 
and buttered and salted, nothing else, it is ambrosia.  
No chef's ingenuity and imagination have ever created a finer dish.
