Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Small Business Saturday. Small is the new Big!


Like any farmers' market in the world, the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market is, simply stated, a gathering of small businesses (farmers, growers, and food artisans) supported by their customers and communities.

This Saturday, November 30th, is Small Business Saturday across America. Buying local and supporting small businesses (in person and online) has a tremendous impact. According to the National Federation of Independent Business, in 2018, approximately 2.2 million small businesses participated in the event, as did 104 million consumers. More and more, small businesses and consumers are particpating in Shop Small (Small Business Saturday) each year.

As this season of giving, eating, drinking, and merriment approaches, thank you for supporting small business! Thank you for buying local! Thank you for shopping Uptown Westerville!

Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: October 30th Market Report

Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: No Wheels on Wednesdays!


The road to success is dotted by many tempting parking spaces. [Will Rogers] 

Keep your wheels out of the market space on Wednesdays. 

The market space parking lot is posted NO PUBLIC PARKING from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Wednesdays during market season (May thru October).

Church of the Messiah can still access the space up until 1:30 p.m. 

The market works with WPD on keeping the lot clear - we can cite... we can tow, and we prefer it never get to that point.

Fortunately,  99.9% of area drivers stay out of the parking lot on Wednesdays- which we greatly appreciate! It's the .1% that can completely disrupt the market space and compromise safety.


In Current Events: With the upcoming debate event taking place on the Otterbein University campus, Uptown parking and traffic logistics are changing; some of those changes are already in place. WHAT WILL NOT CHANGE is the fact that the parking lot at N. State and E. Home Streets (62 N. State) is CLOSED to PUBLIC PARKING on Wednesdays from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market. Please, help out the community and keep your vehicle out of the market space. Thanks.
