Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Testing Extended Hours

This is only a test... in response to Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market patron requests, the market is testing extending market hours to 6:30 p.m. for a couple weeks.

Market closing time has been a point of discussion for a while. It isn't that the desire to stay open later isn't there, but logistically, so many of our market vendors are farmers with working farms and have a good hour-plus drive to and from Westerville outside set-up, load-out, and the 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. market business hours. And there is the rub, since they need to get back to their farms to finish the day on-site while there is still some daylight left.

Some market vendors can stay past six, some are not able to, so, we are "test driving" extended hours. So, for the meantime, select market vendors will be present from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. as we complete our test.

Thanks for your feedback, keep us posted (
