Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: A Market Report from Carousel Watergardens

Mark and Cathy Krist of Carousel Watergardens Farm and Cathy's Tasty Treats are back for the 2009 market season:

Cathy shares:

Carousel Watergardens Farm is busier than “ants at a picnic” right now. It is the heart of our busy season. Our greenhouses are in full swing with our seedlings which we started in December and January and continue to plant every day through the end of April.

We are also busy with our Columbus Winter Farmers Market in Clintonville. See our web site at for dates and times. We have 3 more markets this spring before our spring/summer markets start the first week of May.

We still have some cabbage, onions, garlic and potatoes in cold storage that we are selling at our market. Also dried hot peppers are available too. We are growing spinach and spring salad mix to sell at our winter market and will still have it coming on when the Westerville Market starts in May. Our annuals and vegetable plants will be ready to sell for the first markets. We should also have some sugar snap peas ready.

Cathy’s Tasty Treats will have herb dips, rubs & seasonings, herb breads, jams & jellies, dry edible beans for soups and of course our gourmet dog & cat treats.

We are busy shifting up our seedlings into flats and pots in preparation for spring sales. Wish we had more sunshine it has been an extremely cloudy year so far, and hasn’t helped with the plants needs or mine for that matter. :)

We are looking forward to the spring/summer markets starting, and catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. It has been one long long winter and I am sure everyone is chomping at the bit the same as we.

Have a great day!
