Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: July 1st Market Report

The July 1st Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market is a great place to stock up for the July 4th Weekend:

We are grillin' and cookout friendly with certified organic, chemical-free, and conventional produce, chutneys, maple products, including maple barbecue sauce, baked goods that include pies, cookies, biscotti, confections, and breads, cheese, beef, lamb, jams, jellies, rubs and seasonings.

We heard from Blue Jacket Dairy, and Angel King tells us:
The long wait is over! We are bringing Fresh Mozzarella with us to market today. Make sure to pick up some tomatoes and fresh basil while you are at the market.

Speckled Hen Farm will open for business at the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market on July 8th, so we won't see Brooke at the market this week. Speckled Hen features fresh eggs, chicken, and chicken products (like sausage).

The 2009 Market Photo Tours for June 17th and June 24th are now available on flickr.com. So, click here to take the tour!

We've added a new set of photos to our flickr.com collection for this year's market -- Batter and Bowl's cut-out cookie! Each week Batter and Bowl's Sara Yates brings a special cut-out cookie to the market for just $1 each. From Dragonflys to Tropical Fish, it's fun to see what Sara will bring this week!

We are pleased to announce that market vendors accepted $285 in WARM Fresh Green vouchers in May and June combined. WUMA and The Uptown Westerville Farmers’ Market support WARM. -- the Westerville Area Resource Ministry. WARM and the Farmers’ Market have teamed up so farm fresh, healthy foods can be available to everyone in the Westerville area: The WARM Fresh Green Program.

WARM Volunteers will be collecting non-perishables during this Saturday's Rotary Club of Westerville's July 4th Parade.

(By the way, the parade start time is 1 p.m.)

predictions for the afternoon during market hours are a 50% chance of rain -- which is also a 50% chance of no rain! The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market is open rain or shine. Pack your rain gear and keep in mind, each merchant is under canopy.

Have a safe, happy July 4th Weekend, thank you for your patronage.

Note: Use your best judgment in all weather situations. In the event of lightning, the market will suspend operations to focus on personal safety. Photo image: Sweet!
