Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: October 22nd Market Report

This is the next to last Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market for 2008.

We aren't slicing fresh tomatoes for the table or grilling corn from the market right now, but market produce vendors still have plenty of fall flavors for your table like butternut squash, sweet potatoes, onions, red skin potatoes, apples, sweet and hot peppers, green beans, garlic, and turnips.

(Fresh green beans, cooked with red skin potatoes, onion, and a touch of fresh garlic, and your favorite seasonings make a great side dish on a beautiful, cool fall evening.)

Check out the market selection of fall favorites like Indian corn, gourds, pumpkins, bittersweet, wheat, and of course, pumpkins!

This week will be the last week of the season for Arjay Gourmet Foods and Rohini's Chutneys -- now is the time to stop by, see Rohini, and stock up! Brace yourself -- no pie this week... Sue Renner of Sue's Kitchen will not be at this week's market, but will be at next week's market. So, plan for pie on October 29th!

Next week, on October 31st, the Westerville Uptown Merchants Association is presenting Midnight Madness from 7 p.m. to midnight. This year's event features a Community Pumpkin Display with Uptown Gift Cards for first, second, and third prizes. Pick a pumpkin at the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market this week or next and enter! (Drop your pumpkin entry off on October 31st at the parking lot on W. Main, just west of N. State, between Morgan's Treasure (12 W. Main) and the Visitors Bureau (20 W. Main) from noon to 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.)
