Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Welcomes You to Our 2009 Market Seaon

The Uptown Westerville Farmers’ Market, sponsored by the Westerville Uptown Merchants Association, opens the 2009 season at 3 p.m. Wednesday, May 6, 2009 with a special market blessing from Reverend Stan Ling of Church of the Messiah, United Methodist and Father Charlie Klinger of St. Paul Catholic Church.

The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market is open every Wednesday May 6, 2009 through October 28, 2009, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the corner of N. State and E. Home Streets, in the Church of the Messiah parking lot.

Home-grown, home-made, and all Ohio, the market provides an ever-changing fare including farm-fresh certified organic, chemical-free, and conventional, seasonal fruits and vegetables, heirloom produce, baked goods, breads, bed plants, herbs, flowers, chutneys, spreads, sauces and rubs, honey, pet treats, maple products, natural personal care products, meats and poultry to-order, and fresh eggs. Early seasonal fresh produce selections include asparagus, lettuces, and rhubarb.

And, remember, the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market is a sample friendly place!

18 market vendors will be open for business on May 6th, including:

Arjay Gourmet Foods, Bildsten Landscape, Bird’s Haven Farms, Blue Jacket Dairy, Bridgman Farm, Carousel Water Gardens & Cathy’s Tasty Treats, Doran's Family Farm, Flying J Farm, Frijolito Farm, Honey Health Farm, Landrum Cottage Designs, Northridge Organic Farm, Osage Lane Creamery, Pleiades Maple Products, Sue’s Kitchen, and Varley Valley Baked Goods.

The market welcomes new vendors: Batter and Bowl featuring cakes, cookies, and baked goods, and Nature's Honey, featuring natural soaps. Later in the growing season, the Uptown Westerville Farmers’ Market will welcome Amherst Greenhouse and Malabar Acres.

A trip to the market is a great way to enjoy a Wednesday afternoon in Uptown Westerville -- come Uptown for lunch, browse, visit, and shop Uptown Westerville, and pick up dinner ingredients at the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market.
