Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: May 6th Market Wrap Up

Wednesday May 6th, the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market started its 2009 season on a rainy Central Ohio afternoon.

The market is open rain or shine and this week it happened to be much more rain than shine.

But, undaunted by weather, 18 vendors set up shop, including new market vendors, Sweet Thing Gourmet, Batter and Bowl, and Nature's Honey.

In spite of the rain drops, market vendors welcomed a steady stream of customers. Produce vendors featured spinach, lettuce, asparagus, and rhubarb. And, customers purchased delicious artisan breads, chutneys, cheeses, pies, cookies, biscotti, and honey, goat's milk soap, hanging flower baskets, herbs, bed plants, and select poultry and meats.

Market Insider Tip -- The market is rain or shine. So, on those iffy, cloudy days, check the Westerville NOAA weather link in the margin, pack the umbrella or hooded jacket, and come to the market! Market vendors are under canopy and stopping by a market vendor space between drops is a great way to meet the vendors, try samples, and shop!
